Felsted School staff said they are proud of GCSE results this year and that the results reflect the hard work of pupils over the last two years, in their resilience in the last term.
Five pupils achieved 10 grade 9s, a further four achieved nine grade 9s, and 14 pupils achieved a clean sweep of 8s and 9s.
Many students achieved results they would not have thought possible a few years ago.
GCSE students now have the choice of going on to study A-Levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma in the Sixth Form.
Headmaster Chris Townsend said: “I am hugely proud of what our pupils have achieved during their time at Felsted, and look forward to seeing what they can go on to achieve in the coming years.
