Students at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Alford gained exceptional GCSE results, with almost all students gaining 11 GCSEs at A*-C grade and over half of all grades being at A*/A.
Out of all of their students, a staggering 98 per cent gained 5+ A*-C, including English and Maths.
Over a quarter of the students received at least 10 A*/A grades, with 15 per cent of students gaining the new grade 9 in English Language.
All of their students that took AS Accounting or Government and Politics a year early passed, with most gaining A grades.
Several pupils also successfully took AS Extended Project three years early, when they were in Y9.
Headteacher, Angie Francis, said: “This was a difficult exam period for us with staff and students shaken by the tragic death of one of our Y11 students, Lucas Holness, a few weeks before the exams began.
“I am so proud of how everyone in the QEGS community pulled together to support one another.”
She added: “These are amazing GCSE results with well over half of the grades at the top level of A*/A or 9-7.”
Some of the students whose results particularly stand out are: Hugo Fry who gained 10A*s (with a 9 in Maths) and 2 As with an A* in Extended Project AS and an A in Accounting.
Freddie Lawie gained 9A*s (with 9s in Maths and English Language) and 3 As with an A in AS Accounting.
