Students at the Da Vinci Studio School for Science and Engineering are celebrating after GCSE results were released today.
The headline figures were 68% of students getting an A*-C grade in maths and 50 per cent in English.
The school said the levels of progress attained by students since entry has been “very good” with some students securing five and six levels of progress between key stage 2 and key stage 4 and many achieving grades well above their target.
Among the top performers was Beth Kendle who managed eight grades at A* or A out of her 10 GCSEs.
Commenting on her results, the 16-year-old from Woolmer Green said: “I couldn’t have done much better and it was due to some great teaching and hard work. I am going on to study maths, history, chemistry and politics at A-level and hope to study history at Cambridge.”

Fellow 16-year-old Elyssia Dale was another high-flyer who also secured a host of A* and A grades.
Elyssia is hoping to take a business admin apprenticeship and was delighted with her experience at Da Vinci. She said: “This has been so different from my last school. I wasn’t spoon fed but instead had to push myself and it has made me grow as a person. My results speak for themselves.”
