It’s GCSE results day – a worrying and exciting time for so many of South Tyneside’s young people as they decide on the next steps they wish to take.
On Thursday, August 20 we met some of the teenagers collecting their grades after exams were cancelled this summer as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s how the day unfolded in pictures. See if you can spot anyone you know in the photographs.
