Students have been celebrating their success in their summer exams.
A special award night was held by St Thomas More RC Academy to honour the pupils who did well in their exams.
The North Shields school saw 73 per cent of students achieve five or more A* to C grades, including English and maths, at GCSE level.
And 56 per cent achieved A*, A and B grades at A-level.
The annual awards evening saw students, family, friends and staff celebrate their overall achievement, with individual honours also handed out.
