A quarter of all GCSE grades obtained by students at The King’s School, Ely, were A*.

More than 55 per cent were A* or A grades, 80 per cent were A* to B grades, and 94 per cent of grades were A*-C.

Many students achieved all A* and A grades in all of their chosen subjects.

Harriet Pinto achieved 13 A* grades while Katie Damien and Asia Choudhry achieved 11 A* grades. Both Katie and Harriet scored 100% in several of their subjects.

Other top performers included Kerry Baird, Matthew Bridgman, Arjun Goyal, Isaac Halpern, Eamon Hatoum, Alice Keeling, Juliet Koopowitz, Isobel Oughton, Isabelle Parris, Sabina Ray, Sam Lachmann and Yordan Ignatov.

Sam and Yordan achieved 100 per cent in their biology, physics and chemistry exams with Arjun and Isobel both achieving full marks in all their Spanish exams.

In drama, nusic, Latin, Greek and further maths, 100 per cent of students achieved A*-B grades. In further maths five students achieved an A^ grade, above even that of an A*.

More than 94 per cent of students achieved A*-B grades in chemistry, biology and physics. Maths grades were once again strong, with 60 per cent of grades being A*-A and 89 per cent being A*-B.

King’s Ely International students, despite studying in a language not their own and taking their GCSEs in just one year, achieved an impressive A*-C rate of 91 per cent with half of exams being graded A* or A.

Principal Sue Freestone said: “The joy of GCSE results day is seeing the delight on the faces of those who have exceeded their own expectations.

“Their results represent a real validation of the years that so many young people invest in their studies.

“Society is so quick to criticise our teenagers. We should celebrate their achievements and respect them for their commitment to their educational development.”

Jane Thomas, vice-principal academic, said: “Many of our students have achieved very strong results and many have surpassed their expectations. We are very proud of all their achievements.”
