Students at a South Yorkshire academy will today collect GCSE results that are their school’s best ever.
Ninety five per cent of students at Trinity Academy, in Thorne, achieved the benchmark five A*-C passes.
The top three performing students achieved 41 A* and A grades between them.
Performance in the academy’s business and enterprise specialism was very high with 94 per cent of students gaining a C or better.
The cohort also recorded the academy’s best ever result in mathematics with 69 per cent of the entire year group achieving a C or better.
Trinity Academy Principal Ian Brew said: “Once again our students have raised our performance at GCSE thanks to their hard work, the commitment of a dedicated team of staff and supportive parents.
“I am delighted that many have chosen to join our growing Sixth Form and hope that, in two years’ time, we will be celebrating similar success at A level.”
The academy’s top performers are:
- Megan Gee, 11 A*s and three As;
- Benjamin Brint, two A*s and 11 As;
- Laura Day, 14 As;
- John Baxter, two A*s and eight As;
- Alexander Frost, two A*’s and eight As;
- Thomas Taylor, one A* and nine As;
