Nailsea School is celebrating a dramatic increase in the number of students achieving five or more A*-C grades at GCSE.
This year 60 per cent of students scored five or more A*-C grades including English and maths - a 12 per cent increase on 2013’s results.
It is the second year the figures have risen, validating the school’s recent ‘good’ rating from Ofsted.
Nineteen students achieved outstanding results including Laura Packham, Alice Vaughan Williams, Maddy Starzark, Charlie Hogg, Ellie McBride. Oliver Bagnall, Hannah Sims and Georgie Williams who achieved all A and A* grades.
Headteacher Chris Wade said: “We are thrilled that so many students have achieved the high grades they deserved in such a wide range of qualifications. “The continued improvement in results for the school is a fantastic reward to students and staff for the very hard work that has made this possible.
