STAFF and students at Sir William Romney’s School in Tetbury are celebrating the best ever haul of GCSE results in core subjects.
The school posted a 58 per cent success rate for students who had achieved at least five GCSE results graded from A*-C including English and maths – one of the key figures that schools are judged by.
Headteacher Steven Mackay said he was very proud of what the students had achieved.
“I am delighted with these results which have seen the results improve year on year to the highest that the school has ever achieved,” he added. “I was particularly pleased with the very high proportion A* grades achieved and the large number of students who have achieved at the highest level.
“It was very pleasing to see so many of our students gain the grades that they need to progress to college or sixth form and I am very proud of them all.”
In total, 75 per cent of papers were graded A*-C and one in five GCSE grades were A* or A.
There were also excellent performances from individual students with 10 per cent of the young academics achieving six or more A*or A grades.
The highest achieving students were Charlie Ash and Melissa Winder who both received an impressive six A* and four A grades.
