Brentwood School students have been celebrating another impressive set of GCSE results.
A notable 97 per cent of this year's GCSE students achieved A* to C grades, up on last year's total of 96.1 per cent. It was also a year for exceptional scholars, with a record number of students securing all A*grades and all A* and A passes.
A* grades alone reached over 21 per cent, and just over 55 per cent of all students celebrated passes at A* or A grade. Nearly 84 per cent of students gained A*to B grades.
There were nine straight A* students, and 33 who opened their envelopes to find just the letter A, either on its own or with a star, gracing their results letter. This was up on last year when seven students were awarded all A* grades and 29 A*/A grades.
Exceptional scholars included Julia Cockcroft, Izzy Fewster, Lucy Hirst and Lily Wood who all gained an incredible 12 A*s.
An amazed Julia said: I am so surprised, I cannot quite believe it. The teachers here are absolutely amazing and give you so much support and make you feel so comfortable if you go to them for advice."
