Students at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Alford gained exceptional GCSE results, with almost all students gaining 11 GCSEs at A*-C grade and over half of all grades being at A*/A.

Out of all of their students, a staggering 98 per cent gained 5+ A*-C, including English and Maths.

Over a quarter of the students received at least 10 A*/A grades, with 15 per cent of students gaining the new grade 9 in English Language.

All of their students that took AS Accounting or Government and Politics a year early passed, with most gaining A grades.

Several pupils also successfully took AS Extended Project three years early, when they were in Y9.

Headteacher, Angie Francis, said: “This was a difficult exam period for us with staff and students shaken by the tragic death of one of our Y11 students, Lucas Holness, a few weeks before the exams began.
