    Informed and announced

    Here is my sentence:

    The pupils were informed that the results of the last exam would be announced to them by the end of the week.

    is it correct grammatically?
    I'd like you to explain me the difference between to inform and to announce. Are there any synonyms?

    People are informed/told. The information/news is announced.
