Peter Tomkins, vice Principal, said: “Our students have done well and results have risen for the second year running.

“Many students will be delighted with their grades which will allow them to make a range of choices going forward and we are pleased that many will be joining us in the sixth form.

“We are also pleased that these results show a narrowing of the gap between the achievement of disadvantaged students and other students at Montsaye.”

A number of students achieved the new grade 9, the highest grade possible, given to just three per cent of exam papers.
