The headteacher at Woodbridge High School has called his pupils’ GCSE and Cambridge National results “nothing short of a triumph” after dealing with a year of disruption. 

Steve Hogan, headteacher at the school in St Barnabas Road, Woodford, said he was “immensely proud” of the cohort’s achievement. 

He said that the year 11 students had seen “more disruption to their education than any I have known" and praised their hard work during remote learning and after the school reopened.
