DESPITE gloomy grade percentages dominating the news bulletins yesterday (August, 23), St Columba’s College in St Albans posted its best ever GCSE grades in the schools history.

Pupils in Year 11 received outstanding results as more than 22 per cent of the attained grades were A*.

An impressive 16 per cent of students also gained six or more A* grades, and 15 of them earned A* and A grades across the board.

Edward Butler-Caddle had the best performance with eleven A*s, closely followed by Max Wilding who gained ten A* grades.

The schools’ good new comes following equally impressive A-level results last Thursday, when nearly 70 per cent of its students were awarded with A* to B grades.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
