The head teacher of Thomas Cowley High School has said pupils have worked ‘tremendously hard’ and are a ‘credit to themselves’.
She said the school is ‘thrilled’ at how well the students have done.
Head teacher Martyn Taylor said: “Congratulations are also due to the staff at the Thomas Cowley High School who dedicate themselves to ensuring that all students can be the best that they can be. They too have worked tirelessly to help all the students achieve these outstanding results.
“The results demonstrate yet again why so many parents want their children to attend The Thomas Cowley High School. They show clearly that students of all ability are given the opportunity, the expert assistance and the individual care in order to do well.”
