Four dedicated students at The Park Community School have celebrated a 100 per cent attendance record.

Laura Swales, Ellie Raymond, Owen Davies and Harry Huxtable have not had a single day off in their five years at the Barnstaple school.

Presenting them with certificates and badges to mark the achievement, headteacher Gareth Roscoe said: "It is widely acknowledged that good attendance has a positive impact on progress.

"For any student to achieve 100 per cent attendance over a school year is fantastic, showing real determination and strength of character.

"To achieve 100 per cent over five full years of secondary education is extremely rare and a remarkable achievement."
