Speaking to the Recorder, Brampton Manor headteacher Dayo Olukoshi said: “The results are excellent. We also have five students who have succeeded at getting into Oxford or Cambridge, which is fantastic.”
The academy saw nearly 90 per cent of students achieve A* to B grades with nearly 60pc getting As or A*s.
“I am very pleased,” added Mr Olukoshi. “It has been a very good day. I’m proud of them.”
NewVic College saw a 96pc pass rate with a rise of 5pc in the proportion of students earning A* to C grades on last year.
Eddie Playfair, NewVIc principal, said: “I’m delighted. Our results have improved again. It means many hundreds of students get to progress to university.

He said the college, in Prince Regent Lane, had the highest rate of disadvantaged students going to university in the country, adding: “I’m happy with our 65% A* to C rate.
“We aren’t selective in any way so we are not above average when it comes to these statistics. But our grades continue to improve.”
Vocational results at the college also improved this year with 79 students achieving triple distinctions – equivalent to three A*s.
“We are very focused and very ambitious,” said Mr Playfair. “We help them achieve the best they can – it’s about aspiration. It’s wonderful stuff and it’s very stimulating. ”
