In a joint statement they said: “We are both very proud of the student’s achievements.

"Students and staff have worked incredibly hard to achieve these outstanding results, it is particularly pleasing that under the new GCSE examinations, more than a quarter of students achieved a grade 9 to 7 (the equivalent of an A*-A) in English and maths and even more achieved this standard in science.

"We look forward to seeing many students return to our successful sixth form in September and wish all students the very best in their future endeavours.”
