The number of students achieving five A*-C grades including English and maths was 57%, an 11% increase on last year.

Overall, 73% obtained five A*-C grades, while 21 Year 11 students also sat an AS level in critical thinking, with 15 achieving a C or above.

“This is an impressive result for this key performance measure and I am thrilled with our increased position against the national downward trend,” said headteacher Debbie Upton.

“Particularly pleasing is the number of students of all abilities who have attained the top grades. This is an amazing achievement at a time when we know GCSEs are being made harder and top grades are more difficult to attain.
