Elutec pupils showed they were not fazed by the new-style GCSEs after recording an improvement on last year’s results.

The number of pupils passing English improved by 7 per cent, with 7pc achieving the top grades of 7-9.

In addition, 65pc achieved a pass - a grade 4 or higher - in maths, with 9pc achieving a top grade.

Principal Ruth Umerah commended the hard work of pupils and staff in securing the future for Elutec’s Year 11s both in great qualifications and destinations to sixth form and apprenticeships.
