Friends’ School GCSE students and staff are basking in the glory of a “superb” set of GCSE results this year.
The Saffron Walden school had a 100 per cent pass rate A*-G, with 32 per cent of grades at A* or A.
There was a “significant” improvement in the percentage of A*-C grades, up to 91.3 per cent, while the 89.1 per cent of students had A*-C grades including maths and English.
High achievers were Frances White and Amy Partridge, who gained 12 A*s and seven As between them.
Frances said: “I’m incredibly happy, and have surprised myself with my results, although I did work hard throughout the year.
“The school has been so supportive, it’s such a warm environment. My teachers always believed I’d do well.”
Amy said: “I’m so happy with my grades, it was a lot of work and effort but this school is a great place to be.”
Headteacher Anna Chaudhri said: “This is a superb achievement for the students and reflects their talent and hard work. It is also a tribute to the quality of the teaching they have received. The school is truly delighted.”
