Russell Taylor said nine students have achieved straight 9 to 7 grades (the equivalent of A* to B) and 20 per cent achieved 9 to 5s in every subject.

He added that this was despite a government agenda to introduce "exceptionally challenging new curricula" and "high-stakes final examinations".

Overall, almost two-thirds of the pupils at the school achieved the national standard in English and maths.

"As always, I am exceptionally proud of our pupils and staff. Our shared values of mutual respect, compassion for others, discipline, hard work and high aspirations continue to sustain our cohesive community, and have ensured that our pupils in year 11 have fulfilled their potential this summer," said Mr Taylor.
