Clevedon School was full of happy faces today (Thursday) as students were handed their GCSE results.
Hundreds of excited teenagers packed into the school hall to eagerly open their envelopes and discover what all their hard work over the past two years has earned them.
For the first time students have been awarded a mark from 1-9 in English literature, English language and maths with a 4 indicating a pass and a 9 the top grade.
All other subjects still used the traditional A*-U grading system although this will be changed by the Department for Education in future.
Many students excelled this year, with Hannah Filer, Charlotte Loving and Lauren Sharp all securing two top grades in English and maths.
