The strong GCSE results come a week after the school achieved fantastic A level results – with 92 per cent of A Levels at the Sixth Form completed at grades A*-C, three fifths of qualifications awarded A*-A and more than a quarter securing the top A* grade.

Sir Hamid Patel CBE, chief executive of Star Academies which runs the school, added: “With all the disruption of the past two years, and the way grades have been calculated this year, it is hard for a school to compare this year’s results with previous years.

“However, at its core, today is about our young people overcoming adversity and each and every one of them going on to realise their value and achieve their dreams.

“We are delighted that the results they have received today mark another milestone on their journey towards that wonderful future.”
