"Absolute delight" was the reaction to pupils’ GCSE results from the headteacher of Edgbarrow School.
Students achieved the best results yet with 99 per cent achieving five or more A* to C and 80 per cent achieving five A* to C grades including maths and English.
Headteacher Bob Elsey said: “We are absolutely delighted with this year’s results which are the best set of results the school has ever achieved.
“Many congratulations to all the students and their families and a huge thank you to the staff for all the support and guidance they have given.
“These results are hugely rewarding and a reflection of the hard work and commitment shown by students and staff alike. I hope these individual results will open doors to courses and opportunities.
“The Year 11s have been a fantastic group of students and we look forward to working with many of them as they move on to our sixth form – for those that are leaving us after five years, we wish them every success for the future
