“Almost 65 per cent of the grades obtained by pupils were at A* or A, with 89 per cent at grade B or above,” he revealed. “There were many stories of individual success, but it would be impossible to mention each one. However, of particular note were the 40 pupils who gained 10 or more A*s and As and the three pupils who achieved 10 A*s.”

Mr Moore went on to thank the school’s staff for all the “hard work and dedication” that had helped make the exams success possible.
