STUDENTS started their Easter holidays - back in the classroom.
They were taking part in special revision sessions designed to help them prepare for their GCSEs this summer.
Almost 250 students and 27 teachers from local schools took time out from their Easter break on Monday to take part in GCSE English and maths revision classes at Huddersfield New College.
Greenhead College and Huddersfield New College organise the classes each year to help the students attain at least a GCSE grade C in these subjects.
Francine Gibson, the Easter School co-ordinator, said: "The event is in its third year and has proved to be a great success.
"All the students comment positively on the individual and small group teaching they receive."
Vice-principal Steve Wetton said: "We hope that this joint venture with Greenhead College is helping to consolidate efforts being made throughout Kirklees in terms of improving GCSE grades across the board.
"The enthusiasm and work ethic of the students is a credit to their schools and teachers.
"They have all given up a day of their holidays to undertake extra work.
"They all thoroughly deserve to pass their examinations."
