Students across the region have been collecting their GCSE results this morning.
Schools throughout the East had received letters from the qualifications watchdog to warn that changes to the exams would have led to a lot of volatility in grades.
One headteacher said some schools would have seen their results drop this year - but there was still plenty to celebrate at his school.
"This is a very turbulent year for GCSEs.
There's been some real changes that have taken place with the qualifications.
So, it's not the case that I would expect all schools to continue to improve but we're pleased that we have managed to improve our results here."
