Straight As were the order of the day at Wollaston School where results rose again.
GCSE results at the school went up for the second year in succession and outcomes were pleasing in a wide range of subjects, with 65 per cent of all students attaining five A*-C grades, including maths and English.
The new progress measures that the government have introduced this year indicate that 75 per cent of maths students matched or exceeded their expected progress and 86 per cent of English students matched or exceeded their expected progress.
Headteacher Joe Cowell said: “I am delighted so many students saw their hard work and commitment rewarded by really pleasing results.
“These outcomes are the culmination of a positive, ‘never say die’ approach by students, their teachers and their parents.”
