THOUSANDS of Cambridgeshire pupils were celebrating this morning (Thursday) when they tore open their GCSE results.
With the number of A grades doubling this year across the UK many students were relieved that they had secured the grades they needed to go on to study further.
After another successful year at Kimbolton School, headmaster Jonathan Belbin said: "One year we'll have a set of results where we don't have the chance to use the word record!"
The school saw an incredible 98 per cent of its pupils achieve five or more A*-C grades. Student Will Mackay, from Brampton, achieved one of the top five marks in the entire country for his Statistics GCSE.
The A*-C rate was up again at Longsands College where 80 per cent of pupils achieved at least five of the higher grades, up from 76 per cent last year.
Principal Robert Whatmough said: "This has been an outstanding year for us, following on from last week's A level results.
- 1 Missing woman back home
- 2 Huntingdon man due in court on drug charges
- 3 Pastor in freedom of speech and job fight over Pride tweet
- 4 Teenage moped rider seriously injured in crash
- 5 Life would be better without mud says Anne Marie Hamilton
- 6 Read the fascinating history of The Old Bridge Hotel
- 7 Serious case review launched into death of Teddie Mitchell
- 8 New bus service launched to serve Hunts villages
- 9 Man who died on A1 at Sawtry is named
- 10 Jail for Huntingdon man who threatened to kill woman
"While attention traditionally focuses on students who achieve A*-C grades, we are equally proud of the way in which students of all abilities have obtained results that reflect great determination."
