STUDENTS at a middle school have done well in a GCSE exam - three years before the average age of sitting such an exam.
A total of 46 Year Eight students, aged 12 and 13, at Churnet View Middle School in Leek sat their Maths GCSE exam in the summer.
The youngsters attended school last Thursday to discover their results from sitting the exam early.
There was one A grade, eight B grades, 22 C's, 14 D's and two E's.
A spokesman at the school said: "It was the two tops sets in maths that took the GCSE exam this year. We are absolutely thrilled with the results."
