Students from Sidcot School are celebrating an ‘outstanding’ set of results.

Ninety-three per cent of students achieved a 4 or better in English and maths and 78 per cent were awarded a 5 or more.

Nintety-two per cent of pupils also picked up A*-C grades – or 9-4 in English and maths.

Top grades increase by four per cent compared to last year, with 37 per cent of students achieving A*-A grades – 17 per cent above the national average.

Headmaster Iain Kilpatrick said: “I am extremely pleased with these outstanding results. As a school, we continue to perform significantly above national levels and there has been a pleasing uplift in results in all areas, particularly those students gaining top marks.

“In a year that has seen considerable changes to GCSE, particularly in English and Mathematics, our cohort of Year 11 students has performed extremely well, with more students gaining A* to A and 18% achieving top grades 8 and 9 in the new assessment framework.”
