The English results also saw pupils make far greater progress than expected against national benchmarks.

Richard Lord, outgoing principal of Ken Stimpson Community School, was very pleased with this year’s set of GCSE results.

He said: “A tremendous amount of work and effort has gone into preparing for these exams with students attending additional support sessions at lunchtimes, after school, at weekends and throughout each holiday over the course of the academic year.
