Headteacher Anna Chaudhri said: “This reflects the hard work of staff in helping all students achieve. The best grades reflect the application of the individual students and the more rigorous marking at GCSE has not deterred them from attaining top grades, so that they are well placed to move on to their chosen courses post-16.”
