Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls is celebrating their best results in five years.

With an A* to C pass rate of 65 per cent including English and maths, the students and teachers are celebrating an improvement on their results last year.

Julian Dutnall, headteacher, said he was over the moon by the girls success.

He said: “We are so pleased by the results today.

“More than 20 per cent of our girls achieved an A* or A and we had some excellent individual results too.

“We are especially pleased by the progress in English and maths.”
