HUNTERS Hill College in Bromsgrove is celebrating a first-time achievement for the school, after 100 per cent of GCSE students accomplished a grade in English.

This year the Spire House Lane school, which caters for children and teenagers with social, emotional and mental health issues, saw year-11s achieve a range of qualifications as well as GCSE, including BTEC, Entry Level and Functional Skills.

Rev Andrew Lomas said: "On behalf of the governors of Hunters Hill College I am proud to share that this year marks a first time achievement for Hunters Hill College.

"It is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our students and staff that this year’s results build on the excellent outcomes achieved last year.

"Students in year 11 leave us with a whole raft of academic and vocational qualifications including GCSE, BTEC, Entry Level and Functional Skills. Students have passed qualifications in animal care at the college's farm and motor vehicle industry and technologies at the bespoke training garage.

"These achievements allow our students to follow the path of their choice, whether that be into further education, apprenticeships or other training.

"A significant number of our students will now progress to colleges and sixth form provision and we are able to celebrate some exceptional individual performances.

"We believe that Hunters Hill College provides a wonderful opportunity for students to fulfill their potential in a caring and vibrant community and we look forward to welcoming new students joining us in September."
