IT had been an exciting and successful year for Year 11 pupils at Redbridge Community School.

Eleven became the first in the county to achieve the pre-16 certificate in work experience and ten pupils finished their bronze Duke of Edinburgh awards.

The pupils - Class of 2000 - received goods from B&Q and used it to redecorate the youth centre.

Forty-five pupils worked towards a junior sports leader award while their Global Rock entry was of particularly high standard.
