Between them, twins Jess and Alex achieved two 9s and a distinction* in ICT, two distinctions in PE, six grade 8s and seven grade 7s.
Headteacher, Dee Elliott, said: “I cannot praise this group of young people enough. Many of us have found this period a challenging one, yet the class of 2021 have showed huge resilience and determination and today they have received their rewards.
“There are a large number of students who have achieved top grades but, as with all occasions at Nailsea, every achievement and success is being celebrated at every grade level. There are a huge number of individual personal achievements within our results today.
