Pupils at Priory Ruskin Academy in Grantham have exceeded the high percentage rate of five A-Cs by six per cent this year.
Headteacher Clive Shepherd said: “The pupils had a hard task ahead of them, as GCSEs get more difficult every year, but I am really pleased with how well they have all done. I am very proud.”
Forty-eight per cent of students achieved A-Cs in English and mathematics, up from last year’s figure of 42 per cent.
A total of 88 per cent of pupils achieved five A*-C grades.
Mr Shepherd said: “We are hoping that 50 per cent of them will attend the sixth form college.”
Pupil Harry Rayson said: “I am happy with my results, I got an A in maths which is better than expected.
“I want to be an accountant so I am very pleased I got an A.”
George Mitchell, another Priory pupil, said: “I am very happy with my results overall. I got an A* in PE which is good as it is what I want to study at sixth form.”
Gregg Whitty was also pleased with his results. He said: “I got an A* in my photography which is better than I expected.
“I want to move to America with my Dad, so I would like to study photography over there. Somewhere nice and hot.’’
Priory Ruskin is currently building a new school on its Rushcliffe Road site for pupils to move into, including those currently studying at the Queensway site.
Meanwhile, the original school site will be transformed into a sports area.
Mr Shepherd said: “It will encourage students to get more involved in physical education and hopefully they will enjoy it.”
Note - This story has been corrected. It originally stated 42 per cent of pupils achieved A-Cs in English and mathematics when in fact 48 the figure is 48 per cent.
