Pupils at the John Henry Newman Catholic School in Stevenage were celebrating their GCSE results today as almost 30 percent of grades were at A* or A.
Overall, 77 per cent of students gained a C or above in English and maths.
Learning co-ordinators Joe Hewitson and Sarah Ince said: “We are so proud of our pupils, who worked tremendously hard to achieve these results. At the same time, we would like to pay tribute to the support given by our fantastic parents and our hardworking staff, without whom these results would not be possible.”
