Haven High Academy saw a record number of students entering for GCSE qualifications this year with 56 per cent of pupils achieving five or more A*-C grades.

A total of 145 students gained at least 10 GCSE qualifications and 98 per cent of pupils at the school achieved five or more A*-G grades.

Executive Headteacher, Adrian Reed said changes to the exams system, brought about by the Government, made it extremely difficult to compare results from year to year.

He said the academy has seen volatility in English, following the National picture, adversely affecting different groups of students this year - whereas in Mathematics 69 per cent of students gained a grade C or above – beating the National figure of 62 per cent.

He said: “I am delighted that every student has gained the qualifications needed to enable them to take the next steps in their education and thrilled that record numbers of student have met the standard required for entry into our sixth form”.

High performers, with a string of A*, A and B grades included: Gabrilelle Barsegjan, Leah Bretten, Tamara Butler, Aimee Davies, Hannah Green, Jenny Jose, Connor Lowe, Samuel Meshulam, Lauren Potter, Hannah Pryor, Casey Quin, Cahlia Ross, Lauren Stephens, Demi-Leigh Ward and Aria Yeatman.
