Castle Manor Academy saw the number of students achieving five A* to C grades at GCSE rocket by 98 per cent – up 12 per cent from last year.
That figure including English and maths was 52 per cent.
Among the top performers were twins Eniola and Folasade Akinsanya, bagging 25 A* to C grades between them – Eniola grabbing A, seven Bs and five Cs and her sister scoring two A*, A, eight Bs and C.
Last year’s head girl Harriet Potter achieved eight A*s and five As, and will now study biology, chemistry, maths and psychology at Hills Road.
“I’m really pleased with how I have done and did not expect it,” she said.
Daniel Payne scored three A*s, four As and five Bs, and will be reading maths, physics, chemistry and music at Long Road.
Katie Pugh got three A*s, six As and three Bs, and will stay at Castle Manor to study biology, chemistry, English Literature and maths at A Level.
“I’m pleased but not thrilled with how I did as I was hoping for straight As as I’m a bit of a perfectionist,” she commented.
Also staying at Castle Manor but to study chemistry, maths, ICT and history is Alex Moller, who bagged five As, fours Bs, three Cs and a D.
“I’m really pleased with how I did, particularly in English and ethics,” he said.
