Andrew Smith, headteacher, said: "I am really proud of all of our students this morning. The Covid pandemic means that they have faced challenges that I never had when I was at school, but they have coped magnificently, and can be proud of what they have achieved at Saint Aidan’s.

"I wish them all the very bast for the next stage of their education – and hope that Covid plays a much smaller part in it."
