The school’s 5 A*-C grades including Maths and English slightly rose from 61 per cent to 62 per cent this year but 97.98 per cent of students managed A*-G grades in this year’s exams.

And 74.75 per cent of students received 5 A*- C in their exams which improved from last year’s number of 67 per cent.

Acting head teacher Martin McGarry said: “I am really delighted for the pupils; they have achieved their potential or better. We have had some exceptional students with great potential.”

One student Hannah Smith received eight A* grades and 3 As. Others achieved 10 A*/A grades and many students had surpassed teachers’ expectations.
