Headteacher Jim Smith said he could ‘not be more proud’ of his students, staff and parents.

Overall 68 per cent of students achieved five GCSEs graded level 9-4 with 64 per cent attaining this with both English and maths.

Mr Smith said: “All of our students have a fantastic story to tell.

“They have achieved a record number of the much-coveted level 9 grades, with many students achieving level 9 in five or more subjects meaning they will be some of the top performers nationally and on track to fulfil their ambition to study engineering, medicine, veterinary sciences and law at the most prestigious of universities.
