It was smiles all round today at Haggerston School as its first last all female cohort saw a slight improvement on last years results.

With changes to the way GCSEs are graded coming into force this year, 49 per cent of students got at least five A* to Cs, including English and Maths.

Headteacher Dr Jane Keeley put this down to the hard work and dedication of the school’s pupils.

She said: “These results show the impact of the students’ incredible efforts and commitment to their studies, the dedication of their teachers, and the crucial support of their families – well done to all.”

Two of the class of 2014’s brightest stars were celebrating 22 A*s and two As between them.

Dottie MacDonald gained 10 A*s and two As, while Maya Eadie-Catling gained managed to get an A* in all 12 subjects.

These results mark an improvement in standards at the school with nearly half of the year group now meeting the government’s criteria for ‘outstanding’ progress in English and maths.
