Nailsea School is celebrating after achieving improved GCSE results for the third year running.
This year, 65 per cent of students achieved five A*-C grades including English and maths – a rise of 18 per cent over the past three years.
Headteacher Chris Wade paid tribute to the efforts of the students. He said: “This year I have been so proud of the commitment and hard work that our year 11s put in.
“The maturity and work ethic they displayed has really paid off with some outstanding results. The dedication and tenacity of our teaching staff has also helped make such a difference.
“We are proud to have a can-do and positive culture in the school which really supports the students to push themselves.
