Students at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar, Alford, have once again gained excellent GCSE results this year - with almost a third of pupils gaining nine or more of the top grades of 7-9 (A*/A) and a quarter of all grades at 9/8 (A*).

Head teacher, Angie Francis, said: “With all of the new changes to the GCSE courses now in place, it has been a challenging few years.

“It is pleasing that our students are accessing the very top grade and enjoying the challenges that this provides.

“There are some fantastic results, reflecting the dedication of students and staff. They have been a great year group to work with.

“Most students have a strong foundation for their future studies and I wish them much success in the future as they move on to their A Level studies.

“We also look forward to welcoming students from other schools to our outstanding sixth form.”
