Headteacher Mr Mackay said, “I am delighted with these results. It has been a very enjoyable morning seeing so many of our students so happy with their GCSE results and they have thoroughly deserved their success.
“These are, without doubt, the hardest GCSE examinations for a long time and to have so many of our students achieve the highest grades is fantastic achievement. Along with our outstanding A-Level results last week this reflects the hard work of our students and also our very dedicated and skilled teachers.”
