IT WAS all smiles at Barnwell School in Stevenage as students celebrated their results.

The number of students achieving five grades at A*-C was 81%, and of those, 48% had five A*-C grades including English and maths.

Every student who took a BTEC course passed.

Headteacher Tony Fitzpatrick said he was “thrilled” with the maths and science results in particular, with 69% getting A*-C in the former and 89% getting two or more A*-C grades in science.

“Against the backdrop of more stringent examinations, I am pleased that we still continue to make progress,” said Mr Fitzpatrick.

“We are never complacent and with the move to our new middle school completed and the introduction of our college system, we have set the foundations for us to continue significant and rapid whole school progress.”

The chair of governors Julie Ashley-Wren added: “The school is on an exciting journey, I would like to thank Tony Fitzpatrick for leading the school and all the staff for the commitment to ensuring that all students’ progress remains at the heart of the school.”
