DEPUTY headteacher Martin McGarry praised "a very able year group" as the St Ivo School maintained a high pass rate.
The school had slightly more than 70 per cent of its pupils achieve five GCSEs at A*- C and an overall pass rate of 98 per cent.
Mr McGarry said: "We pay tribute to the hard work of our students, ably supported by teaching staff, support staff and parents, who are often forgotten.
"Most students have achieved the grades they needed and a large number of children secured 10 or more passes at A* - C, which shows a high level of performance over a sustained period."
High achievers at the school included Alice Colligan, who secured three A* passes - in English, dance and history - as well as seven A grades and two Bs. She will study art, the history of art, physics and English at sixth form.
Meanwhile, Tessa Gilligan achieved eight A grades and two Cs in her GCSEs and will remain at St Ivo to study English, ethics, theatre studies and geography.
