Rossett School in Harrogate has recorded a record round of GCSE results.

A total of 97 per cent of pupils achieved at least five passes at A*-C, while 73 per cent gained those grades for five subjects including English and maths – the Government’s gold standard for GCSEs – which is five per cent higher than last year’s figure.

Overall, 99 per cent of pupils got at least five GCSEs at grades A*-G.

Headteacher Pat Hunter said: “The last nine groups of GCSE pupils have given us year-on-year improvements in our results, which is a fantastic achievement.

“This year’s pupils have surpassed themselves and achieved another very significant increase, which reflects not only their hard work but the contribution of the staff at Rossett and the support of their families.”

The maths results were particularly impressive, with a record 87 per cent of grades between A* and C – up from 80 per cent last summer.

As well as the record-breaking results achieved overall, some of the pupils scored outstanding marks individually, including twins Luke and Anya Gair, who earned 23 GCSEs between them.

Mrs Hunter added: “We’re very proud of all of our students for the work they have put in to achieve their results.

“However, it’s not all about the grades – at Rossett we encourage them to become rounded young people during their time with us, so they can look forward to their adult lives with confidence.”
