Students and staff at the Bridge Academy were celebrating today after achieving their best ever set of GCSE results.

An impressive 30 per cent of exams were graded A* to A, while 67pc of students achieved between an A* and C grade in English and maths.

Chris Brown, principal at the school, praised the students for all their hard work.

“This is a wonderful set of results,” he said.

“Our students have worked extremely hard this year and it is fantastic to see them so richly rewarded - I would like to congratulate them all on their amazing achievements.

“I would also like to pay tribute to the Bridge Academy staff, whose commitment to getting the best from every student is truly remarkable.”

Nationally, the picture is different – the proportion of exams graded A* to C has dropped from 69pc to 66.9pc, its lowest since 2008.
