Nine students, at the school in Marlborough Gardens, achieved a grade 9 in both English and Maths, the new highest mark in the subjects.

A school spokeswoman said: “With the reformed GCSEs in English and Maths, outcomes were very positive with 75 per cent of students achieving a standard pass in both English and maths.”

Hall Mead was particularly proud of Andrew Madu, one of the nine who achieved a grade 9 in maths and English.

Charlie Myers, Kiera Hopkins, Madeleine Burnet, Chanya Jamjumras, Tyler Clark, Brooke Haggata-Davies, Thomas Gibson, Mitchell Broad and Sarah Emanuel were some of the students who achieved the new highest mark.

Headteacher Simon London commented: “We are really proud of the achievements of our students this year, particularly at a time of such dramatic change nationally. I wish them all the very best for the future.”

This is the first year of the new numerical grading system for English and maths, with marks between 1 and 9 – with 9 being the highest.

The Recorder has worked out that 4 is approximately a C grade, 6 equals a B grade and 7 equals an A grade.
