THE best ever GCSE results have been recorded at Morpeth’s King Edward VI School.
The school reported a 100 percent pass rate at grades A to G, meaning all of the 317 students taking the exams achieved at least one pass.
A total of 91 percent achieved at least five A* to C grades, up from a previous high of 88 percent last year.
And 77 percent of pupils attained five A* to C grades including Maths and English, surpassing the previous best result of 75 percent a few years ago.
In addition, 28 percent of grades were A* or A, and 13 students achieved a straight run of A* and As in their exams.
Headteacher Simon Taylor said: “These are our best ever results, it’s fantastic.
“We are just delighted. There should be lots of happy faces and lots of students able to go on and do what they want to do.”
