PUPILS at Barclay School in Stevenage have equalled last year's GCSE results, with 40 per cent achieving five or more A* to C grades including English and maths.
Headteacher, Janet Beacom, said: "This year there were more students who experienced difficulty with their learning, so we did not anticipate a significant rise on last year's figure."
But the school is celebrating an increase in A*s and As, with the majority of students achieving or exceeding their target grades.
High achievers include Charlotte Aldred who secured eight A*s and two As, Jenessa Williams who gained four A*s and six As, Dale Donoghue who achieved four A*s, five As and one B, and Elliot Lidgey who gained five A*s and three As.

Ms Beacom said: "Many other students did extremely well and it is also important to recognise the success of students who were predicted Gs but achieved Es and Fs.
"Several students overcame considerable difficulties to pass any exams at all and we congratulate them, as well as thanking staff, parents and carers for their support.
