Pupils and staff at Rushden Community College have celebrated a set of good GCSE results.

A total of 77 per cent of all GCSE candidates achieved A* to C grade in five or more subjects, an improvement of 1 per cent on last year’s result.

Headteacher Mark Lester said: “Once again I must congratulate our school community on its hard work and commitment. This is a joint effort between staff, students and parents. I am particularly pleased that we have achieved a high number of A* and A grades and that so many students achieved their individual targets.”

In Maths, 64.5 per cent of students achieved high grades, a 14 per cent improvement over last year and the school’s best ever GCSE result in the subject.

Science also hit an all-time high with 70 per cent of students achieving two good passes, and pupils who took PE and health and social care courses achieved 100 per cent A* to C grades.
