Teenagers in Portishead found out their GCSE results this morning (Thursday) and the vast majority achieved excellent grades.
Gordano School’s hall was packed with students opening the envelopes containing their results.
For a second successive year, 73 per cent of pupils achieved five A* to C grades, including the core subjects of English and maths.
Gordano’s headteacher Gary Lewis said: “I’m incredibly proud of our pupils for delivering outstanding results once again.
“I am also delighted that they have achieved well across the board and not just at the top.
