WILLIAM Lovell Students have been congratulated for their hard work with 75 per cent gaining at least five A*-C grades in their GCSEs.
This included 40 per cent of pupils getting at least five A*-C grades including English and maths, above the minimum floor standard.
Headteacher Andrew Fulbrook said: “This is particularly pleasing because we are in a selective county and yet our intake encompasses the full range of ability with no selection or filtering.
“Year on year, each cohort is different and all we can ask is that students do their best – we are very, very proud of our students, well done.”
He promised that although the William Lovell Church of England School - a specialist music college - has achieved consistently high standards of education for a number of years they would not be complacent and would seek to build on the achievement.
“Examination achievement is regarded as an important aspect of the education we provide but not necessarily the most important aspect,” added Andrew.
“A number of factors have contributed to these results: the hard work of the pupils themselves, the support of their parents and, of course, the skill and dedication of our teachers.”
