Students at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar, Alford, gained some excellent GCSE results, with most students gaining 11 GCSEs at A*-C and 98 per cent achieving five or more A*-C grades.

Some students also successfully took exams in AS Accounting, French, or Government and Politics a year early and their AS Extended Project three years early, when they were in Year Nine.

Headteacher, Angie Francis, said: “We look forward to working with these students in our very successful sixth form. Last week’s A Level results, which placed us third in the county and top in our area, together with this week’s pleasing GCSEs, sustain our tradition of excellence.”

One of the Year 11 students whose results stand out is Timothy Powell, from Hagworthingham, who gained 10 A*s with maximum marks in Business Studies, English Language, English Literature and German, plus two As at GCSE along with A grades in AS French and AS Extended Project.

Another is Ashleigh Ponder, from Burgh on Bain, who gained 11 A*s with maximum marks in English Language.
