Principal Elizabeth Dormor said: “My congratulations go to all our students who have achieved such fantastic results.
“This was the first year students had to cope with the hugely increased number of examination papers that the reformed GCSEs demanded, and this cohort dealt with that additional pressure calmly, and with great maturity and diligence.
“They should be very proud of what they have achieved.”
Josh Coleman, chief executive of the EMLC Academy Trust, said: “I’d like to congratulate all the students, and my thanks go to all the staff who have worked so hard to help the students to achieve such great results.”
