Over half the year group achieved five or more passes at the top two grades and the overall pass rate at A*-C was 96per cent.

A total of 99per cent of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including Maths and English.

More than half of the GSCEs taken by the students - 56per cent - were graded A* or A and 18 pupils gained one of the top two grades on all their subjects.

In one subject - textiles - all 24 of the candidates who took the examination were awarded an A* or an A grade.

Headmaster Mr Nicholas Hammond said: "This is an absolutely excellent set of results and the students should all feel very proud of what they have achieved.

"These first-class results, which build on the impressive performance by sixth formers in their A Levels last week, have come about through the successful partnership of students and teachers at the Grammar School, where we have a unique climate of learning.
