"Considering the curriculum changes, the move to the new 9-1 and more rigorous grading system, the pupils here have responded brilliantly.
"We are well ahead of the National pass rates overall and at the very top end of the academic spectrum we have received some stellar results with one candidate achieving eight 9 grades and one eight.
"A considerable number of other pupils achieved just 9s, 8s or 7s which is outstanding and testament to their hard work and the superb individualised academic and pastoral care on offer at WGS."
