Hard work paid off for students at The King’s School, who celebrated a ‘stunning’ set of GCSE results – with many exceeding expectations.

There was relief and jubilation among the teens who arrived at the school this morning (Thursday) to collect their grades – an incredible 40 per cent of which were A or A*.

Headteacher Faith Jarrett said she is ‘delighted’ with this year’s results – which saw more than 76 per cent of students achieve five or more A* to C grades, including maths and English, and 83 per cent of all marks were C or above.

Ms Jarrett said: “The results again demonstrate how hard work can bring fantastic outcomes.

“A great many of the students have met or exceed their target grades which is a testament to all their hard work and support from their teachers and families.”
