The school in Cotswold Road saw pupils manage a 70pc standard pass rate of Grade 4 or above in English and maths.

The standard pass rate in the English Baccalaureate or Ebacc – a selection of core subjects the government considers crucial at GCSE level which includes English, maths, science, a foreign language and either history or geography – was 54pc.

Executive headteacher Paul Ward said: “Overall I am pleased with the results. 
“It’s difficult to compare it to previous years because of the new system but we have learned a lot from this year and will carry on doing what we can to get the best results.”

Pupil Nana Ossei told our reporter he would “just like to thank God” for achieving four 9s and four 8s in his exams, while David Sangojinmi admitted he was “very surprised” to receive a 9 in maths, 9 in English literature and 8s in history and biology.
