PUPILS received a confidence boost before this summer’s GCSEs with an achievement day at Bradley Woods.

The year 11 pupils from Whitcliffe Mount School spent a day at the Huddersfield centre for a morning of English and maths exam preparation.

In the afternoon, they were given the chance to take on physical activities like archery and climbing.

Nikki Gledhill, assistant headteacher, said: “I am very proud of how our pupils have taken up the challenge of their examination year, and are striving to do their best.

“It is great to see both pupils and teachers going the extra mile.

“As a result we have already attained 63 per cent A*-C in mathematics, and hopefully this summer we will achieve out best results ever.”
