The achievements of individual students was also very impressive with 36 students gained 10 or more A* or A grades.

Headteacher Dr Peter Kent said: “Over recent years GCSE results at the school have been amongst the best in the country and I would like to congratulate this year’s group of students on maintaining these very high standards. Results such as these are only achieved through a lot of hard work on the part of students and staff.

“It is also important to remember how much parents do to support their children during this challenging period.”
