This year, 75 per cent of students achieved a grade 4 or above in English and maths, while 55 per cent received a grade 5 or higher in both subjects.

Overall, 70 per cent of students achieved five grade 4 scores or above, including maths and English, and 41 per cent attained the challenging combination of higher passes which earns them the English baccalaureate.

Headteacher Jon Nunes said: "Our year 11 students have worked very hard over the past two years, and they should be very proud of what they have achieved.

"I would also like to thank the dedication and skills of the teachers who have been teaching them.
