In another year of high standards, Bishop Stopford students have performed in line with their peers of 2014: the results last year placed Bishop as the best performing state school in the county.
A total of 85 per cent of students achieved five or more GCSEs at A*-C and 80 per cent of students achieved five or more GCSEs at A*-C including English and maths.
Provisional calculations suggest the progress which students have made over their five years at the school is even better than last year – a testament to their consistent hard work and commitment.
A third of all grades were awarded at A*-A, with 18 students achieving 10 or more A* and A grades.
Two students who performed particularly well were Christian Mitchell with 11 A* GCSEs, and Ella Palmer with 10 A* and 1 A grade.
Twenty-three students’ results showed exceptional progress in relation to their starting points in Key Stage 2 SATs.
Many others exceeded expectations, and are now able to embark upon the next stage of their education with confidence.
Headteacher Margaret Holman said: “This is an important day to celebrate our students’ success.
“We were particularly delighted with results in challenging academic subjects such as maths, where 93 per cent of students achieved A*-C grades.
“We are thrilled for our students today, and immensely proud of their achievements.”
