Corby Technical School’s students made excellent progress with the best overall subjects including English, maths and computer science.

The figures represented an excellent set of results, especially given the relatively small number of the cohort, which comprised just 71 students.

Many achieved 9s in core subjects of naths, English language and literature and nearly 75 per cent achieved 9 – 4 grades including English.

Principal Angela Reynolds said: “I’d like to congratulate our students, particularly those who achieved top grades as they worked very hard to attain these excellent results.

“These students have made very good progress from when they joined us.

“I’d like to thank all the staff at Corby Technical School who have worked tirelessly to ensure that these students have the best opportunities, not only in academic subjects, but also in crucial life skills and opportunities.”
