A third of pupils at The Peterborough School achieved eight or more A* or A grades in their GCSEexaminations, with 23 per cent of all candidates achieving this in 10 or more subjects.
In total, 51 per cent of all the grades were at A* or A, and 77 per cent were at A*, A or B.
Thisyear’s cohortofcomputer science students will be particularly pleased, with 88 per cent of them getting A*s and 92 per cent of the grades in GCSE biology, chemistry and physics at A* or A.
H e a d m a s t e r Ad r i a n Meadows said: “Many congratulations to all the students on these excellent results. I am very pleased for the large number who haveachievedthetopgrades across their subjects and wish all the students well as they move on to the next stage of their education.” Pupils at Ken Stimpson Community School achieving five or more A* to C passes including English and maths has risen by over 10 percentage points to 51 per cent.
The English results also saw pupils make far greater progress than expected against national benchmarks.

Nabin only j oined the school in June last year after moving from Nepal.

“The support of parents and carers along the way has also been vital because we know that this makes a truly positive impact.”
