Almost two thirds of pupils at Sarah Bonnell School have achieved grades 9-4 in English and maths.

The Deanery Road, Stratford school saw 65pc pass both exams with the equivalent to an A*-C.

Twenty eight pc gained 9-7, which roughly equates to A*-A.

The teenagers excelled in English, where 88pc got a grade 4 or above, while in maths it was 65pc.

Pupils also performed well in other subjects where they were among the first to take the new exams, including science, where 68pc gained 9-4.

Headteacher Rae Potter said: “I would like to congratulate all our students.

“Staff have done a great job of making sure students met the challenge of the new GCSEs and I am pleased with the results.”

She added: “This year students were faced with more difficult content, more examinations and a tightly packed schedule of examinations during some of the hottest days of the summer when many of our girls were also fasting.

“I am very proud of their achievements.”
