Dr Chris Eardley, Senior Deputy Head, added:

“This year’s GCSE results have smashed previous records, with 87% of all students achieving Grade 4 and above in English and Maths and 67% achieving grade 5 or above. As a result of five years of the highest standards of education, focussed hard work and committed care and support, our students, with the help of their teachers, have achieved the highest grades ever, across the full suite of subjects, resulting in a Progress 8 score of +0.5.”

Year 11 student Marcelina Kohut collected her astonishing eight grade 9s, two grade 8s and a grade 7, and plans to study Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A-Level.

Marcelina commented:

“Even though I put a lot of hard work into these exams, I wasn’t expecting these results. I am so proud of myself and my teachers for the hard work and support they showed me.”

Jade said:

“I’m so overwhelmed! I never expected to get these grades. I looking forward to seeing where these grades take me in the future.”

Cerys added:

“I would like to thank all my teachers for their help. Without their support, I couldn’t have achieved these results.”

Brothers Archie and Harry Gordon-Beeson both lived in France for four-and-a-half years before moving to the UK and attending Toot Hill School. Both brothers achieved a grade 9 in GCSE French.

Ashfaq Rahman, Vice CEO of the Nova Education Trust, added:
