Headteacher Vicent Murarry said: “They’re the second highest we ever had. Boys and girls performed equally well.

Nationally many pupils grades are expected to drop for a second year in a row but Mr Murray was pleased to see his school buck the trend.

He added: “There’s been a concern about stability with all the changes recently and whether results will go down. Our results have held up and that’s pleasing.”

Outside of English and maths 71% of students achieved five or more A* to C GCSEs.

Outstanding pupils included Jen Smith who got 6 A*s, 5 As, 1 B and 1`C; Kieran Lindars with 4 A*s, 7 As, 2 Bs; Ellen Chapple who achieved 4 A*s 3 As 3 Bs 2 Cs and Chloe Bicknell with 3 A*s, 7 As, 1 B

Chloe said: “I can’t believe it. I’m looking to go on to sixth form and study English literature, psychology and business studies.”
