Students who performed well in exams have been honoured by their school.

Pupils at St Thomas More RC Academy in North Shields attended their annual Academic Awards evening.

A total of 54 teenagers were honoured for their successes in GCSE, AS and A-level exams, being presented with certificates and gift vouchers.

The John Bassett Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mathematics was awarded to Sarah Cassidy, who is going to Cambridge to read mathematics.

John Bassett was head of maths and then an assistant headteacher before he died very suddenly three years ago.

Robert Conway and Sarah Thew were awarded prizes for achieving 100 per cent in both of their RE GCSE exams.

Headteacher Diane Donkin said: “The students honoured in our Academic Awards evening have been blessed with a gift for academic study but they have also achieved through a steadfast commitment to study and an unshakeable determination to succeed.”

“It is these qualities that we also applaud and celebrate.”
