GCSE pupils at New Mills achieved a 100 per cent pass rate of A-C in biology, physics and music.
In art, biology, chemistry, ICT, media studies, music and physics there was a pass rate which exceeded 85 per cent.
Headteacher Debbie McGloin said: “It’s so rewarding to watch students’ faces light up as they see how their hard work has paid off with examination success.
“These results – particularly English and maths – will have an impact on students’ life chances for many years to come.”
Over three quarters of students have achieved an A-C in the relevant English GCSE, 85 per cent of them making three levels of progress since they joined the school.
In maths 6 per cent of students have made at least three levels of progress and almost a third have exceeded national progress targets.
Rose Bartels secured 10 GCSEs, with seven A-A*s. She said: “I am so pleased and proud of these grades. I feel really well prepared and excited for the next challenges ahead.” Keir Chetham was also delighted with his results, achieving 9 GCSEs of which 8 were As and A*s.
Mia Rothwell, another high flier secured 10 GCSEs – nine of them were As and A*s and Billy Lancaster was very happy to see 10 GCSEs of which eight were As and A*s.
James Stubbs won the Growth Mindset award in Year 11 this year – an award that recognises his willingness to learn and his tireless work ethic.
He has gained eight A-C GCSEs including an A and an A* grade.
He said: “This is a brilliant day! I felt so happy when I saw my results and it’s nice so many of my teachers are here to see it because they have been a great support all the way through.” Mrs McGloin added: “We are celebrating today with young people who are looking at rows of As and A*s, but just as importantly we are celebrating with students who have worked really hard to outstrip their predictions and make excellent progress in their time with us.
“We are a genuinely comprehensive school and it is our role to secure the best outcomes for all our students.”
