Highest possible grades at Helston Community College as students celebrate GCSE results

A student looks stunned at her GCSE results

Seeing that I had done so well made me so proud of myself that all these years that I had put in so much effort to achieve the best in me.

At Soham Village College 67 per cent of students achieved the equivalent of grades A*-C in both maths and English and more than 50 students achieved A*-A grades or equivalent in most of their subjects.

Schools and colleges across Hackney take a break from the summer holidays today as nervy students arrive to collect their GCSE results.

"I am extremely pleased that the hard work and efforts of our pupils has been reflected in these outstanding results", said Alan Williamson, Kings' School's director of education.

Interim headteacher Ian Straw congratulated his students and staff and said how proud he was of the team work at the school, which had brought "amazing success stories".

Sixty-three per cent of students attained at least five "standard" passes, including in English and Mathematics.

"I want to study medicine or possibly maths at university". So students will receive a mixture of numeric and alphabetic grades this year.

The reforms also introduced tougher exams in English Literature and Maths, with the latter now including material previously only taught at A-level.

"To achieve a total of 22 grade 9s was phenomenal given the high standard required to achieve this top grade".

The 16-year-old, who arrived in the country from Poland at the age of nine, said: "I really wasn't expecting to have done so well".

The school said there were many other "excellent performances" at the top grade, with 20 per cent of students achieving five or more GCSEs at grade A or 7 and above. As their head of care and achievement, I know how fortunate I was to have worked with them through these changing times. "I wish all our students the best in the next chapter of their lives".

"There has been a great deal of national debate about making GCSEs ever harder, and to see our students with their wide range of abilities continuing to achieve highly is a real credit to them".

He achieved an 8 in Maths, 7 in English literature, 5 in English Language, A* in Biology, Chemistry and History A in Physics and Spanish.

A total of 11 students gained grade 9 in English qualifications and the number for maths was also 11.
