Students at Wisbech Grammar School have been celebrating top-class GCSE examination results.
Ninety-nine per cent of pupils gained five or more passes at GCSE, while standout performances came from 27 students who obtained five or more passes at the top two grades – A* and A. Nine of the year group collected nine or more passes at A* and A.
Headmaster Chris Staley said: “I am very encouraged by the results this year, even though the news today was that there would be some volatility due to the Gove effect.
“This success lays a firm foundation for sixth form study and for looking forward to results in two years’ time.”
Laura Harriman, from March, who added nine A* passes to the A* she gained in mathematics a year ago, said: “I did way better than I thought. I have been so nervous on the way into school and it is such a relief to end it.”
