According to results released on Thursday, pupils scoring five GCSE's or more at grade A* to C - including maths and English - has risen by 12 per cent during 2008, bringing the overall total to nearly two thirds of the entire year group.

Headteacher Simon Knight said: "I am delighted with our GCSE results as the upward trend has continued. But we are not complacent and are implementing strategies to continue the improvement further."

Pupils who gained their GCSE grades in August last year will be presented with their certificates at a ceremony to be held in the main school hall on Wednesday February 4.
