Record-breaking results have been achieved by St Katherine’s School in Pill.
GCSE students opened their exams results this morning (Thursday) and the staff were delighted by the results achieved.
Almost a quarter of grades were A* or A and 59 per cent of pupils gained five A* to C grades, including maths and English.
Justin Humphreys, St Katherine’s acting headteacher, said: “These fantastic results are a credit to this year group who earned their success through dedication, commitment and plenty of resilience.
“They have shown great determination and not let anything get in the way of their success.
“I am very proud of all our hard working young people and committed staff who share these results.
“I am delighted with the achievements of this year group, most of whom have achieved exceptional personal results.
