74 per cent of students achieved a minimum of five A*-C grades, while 35 students gained eight or more A*-A grades.

In addition, 47 students have made progress significantly above the national average since joining the school and exceeded their predicted exam grades.

Headteacher Julian Baldwin said: “They have done fantastically well and we are really thrilled with the results.

“The results are well above the national average and we have maintained last year’s record achievements.
