Former pupils returned to their school to celebrate their achievements and hard work.

Hedingham School, in Yeldham Road, held an awards ceremony for past Year 13 pupils in celebration of their achievements at the end of their school careers.

Last year’s Year 11 and 12 pupils were also presented with certificates for their results at GCSE and AS Level.

Dr Nicholas Oettle, a former Hedingham School pupil who went on to receive a first class MEng degree from Cambridge University, was on hand to present the awards and special prizes for outstanding achievements.
