Students achieved 68 per cent A*-C in all subjects including English and mathematics – which represents a 4 per cent increase on last year’s results and a 22 per cent increase from 2012.

The school’s head, Martyn Henson, said: “The vast majority of students will be returning to our burgeoning sixth form and amongst them there have been some truly outstanding individual performances, at all levels. High quality teaching at Nobel has meant that progress for all students across the board has significantly improved. Special mention should be made of the mathematics department where 85 per cent of our Year 11 students gained a C or above.”

Notable performers were Rebecca Dwuma, Ben Kimpton, James Marshall, Delorice Murudzwa, Jaden Navjee, Nwenite-Walter Osedeme, Alex Terrett and Jaymie Younger, who all achieved a clean sweep of the highest grades.

Head of Year 11 Billy Lee said: “I am absolutely delighted for the students. They have been a wonderful group to work with and these results are a product of two years of hard work and dedication. Their achievements are richly deserved and I am very proud of them all.”

I am looking forward to starting my A-levels in maths, physics, biology and history in the Nobel sixth form’

James’ mum Julia Marshall works in student support at the Mobbsbury Way school. She said: “James’ outstanding achievement at GCSE reflects his hard work and commitment to his studies. As a parent and member of staff, I am so proud of him and really glad that all the hours of studying and revision have come to fruition.”

Mr Henson added: “The GCSE, like the A-level results, are significantly up on last year. Our value added was 1047 – which is phenomenal. It equates to every student gaining one grade higher in each of their subjects in comparison with national expectations. These are wonderful comprehensive results with students across the ability range making very significant progress – we are very proud and it shows we are an outstanding school.”
