Upton By Chester High School welcomed back its Year 11 pupils to celebrate their past GCSE success.
They also had some special guests for the evening, including broadcaster and historian Dan Snow, who spoke to the pupils and presented some awards.
They were equally delighted to welcome back ex-pupil Tom Heaton, who is now goalkeeper at Burnley FC in the Premier League.
Tom began proceedings with a speech about his time at Upton and the positive support and encouragement he received from the staff.
Pupils were then presented with their GCSE certificates, before departments awarded individual prizes to those who had shown exceptional achievement or commitment in their studies.
