Success: the class the boss had said would all gain grade G (to finish her sentence, 'what, are you going to raise them from a prospective grade G to a grade G? That won't affect your Performance Related Pay. Give yourself a break, you shouldn't keep on with so much effort preparing or working with them') - who collected 5 D's, 11 E's, 3 F's, and 3 G's at GCSE this summer.

Unfortunately, these hard working over acheivers are not the crop-top beaming private schoolgirl thoroughbred sorts who will have made the front pages of the dailies over the summer.

And that's the newspapers' loss, you know.
