Mother and Son Both Make the Grade
When Hethersett High School threw out a challenge to parents to study for a GCSE alongside their children it was too good an opportunity to be missed for a mother and son from the village.
Jeanette Raven, 48, and son Jack, 16, decided to study together for a maths GCSE after Jeanette admitted that she was bemused by Jack's algebra.
Mrs Raven, of Whitegates Close, Hethersett, said: “I did my GCE O level maths 32 years ago and got a C grade, but I absolutely loathed maths and was amazed I even passed it that time.
Hethersett High School had 51% of its
pupils achieve A* to C grades, including English and Maths. Head teacher
Rosie Allen said: “This is a really good result for this particular cohort of students, who over achieved their targets.
