Students at Prince William School in Oundle continue to show improvement and reverse the national trend.

Today’s GCSE results saw 74.73 per cent of the 273 students at Prince William gain at least five grade A* to C passes at GCSE, with 63.37 per cent gaining at least five A* to C including English and Maths.

Interim headteacher Marian Hobbs said: “All of these results show that the school is progressing well, as they are all increases on last year’s results.

“Prince William is on the journey back to its high grades of former years. 2012 surpasses the last high point in 2010.

“This really gives our students the solid foundation that they need for further successful study within the sixth form.”

Individual students did very well, with 43 students gaining A* or A gardes in at least five subjects.

There was also a marked improvement in achievement for students who had a history of underachievement in previous national tests.

But the headteacher added that they still have a journey to go and the staff and students at PWS are all committed to further improvements in results in the future.
