A WHS spokesperson said: "We were delighted to have over 120 pupils take part with each of them receiving a certificate. It was also fantastic to see that we had six pupils receive a Gold Award for being in the top 10 per cent across the UK. A huge well done should go to Aiden Newlands who was awarded the Best in School."
