TWO students with special needs got a surprise as they were presented with their GCSE.
Former footballer Andy Booth dropped into Castle Hill Special School as part of the celebrations for Hugh Shaw and Elvis Lynch.
The two pupils, both aged 17, became the first at the special school to gain half a GCSE in Design and Technology creative crafts.
They gained the grade after linking up with nearby Newsome High School.
Gillian Messenger, PA at Castle Hill, said: “We’re thrilled for them, really proud.
“And they are really pleased with themselves too.”
The teenagers were assisted in their studies by Patricia Street, a teaching assistant at Castle Hill.
And to celebrate the students achievements, Huddersfield Town legend and ambassador Andy Booth presented them with their award.
He also took part in an assembly at the Newsome Road South school to honour their achievements.
