Mr Cumming added: “We are pleased that children who have worked very hard have been successful, and, with the support of teachers and parents, have achieved some very high grades.

“Despite exams getting harder, our children continue to rise to the challenge.”

Among those who picked up a top set of results was Luke Kirchner, from Kettering. He earned two A*s, five As, five Bs and two Cs, and said: “Overall I am very happy. I was relatively calm about the results until last night when I only got two or three hours’ sleep.”

Also celebrating are Benjamin Ward and William Aldwinckle, who both plan to stay on at Montsaye.

Benjamin, who got two As, four Bs and five Cs, said: “I am pleased – in some I have done better than I thought.”

William added: “I am happy with what I got.” He collected an A*, four As, five Bs and three Cs.

Alice Twelvetree, from Desborough, Chloe Deadman, from Desborough, and Rosie Griffiths, from Rothwell, all said they were also planning to stay on at Montsaye for the next two years.
