Students at Sir Christopher Hatton Academy are celebrating their best ever GCSE results, with 75 per cent of students achieving A* to C in English and 71 per cent of students achieving A* to C in maths.

Despite a fall nationally in maths, grades A* to A increased further at the academy with more than one in four students achieving the grade.

Having been confirmed as outstanding by Ofsted in March 2016, these results see further significant improvements in every area.

“My congratulations to all the dedicated staff who have worked tirelessly to enable the best outcomes for our students.

“These results are testament to the determination of the staff and students.

“It is a very proud day for Hatton.
