Richard Spencer, college principal, has already congratulated all of his pupils, he said they were "very pleasing results".

Thirty nine per cent of students at the East Cambridgeshire school achieved the top 5 to 9 grades in English and mathematics.

Sixty one GCSE entries were graded the new 'Grade 9', which is awarded to the top three per cent of students in the country.

In total, 172 GCSEs were awarded at either grades 8 or 9 (equivalent to at least the old A*), compared with just 91 at that level in 2017.

The results come after Ely College was rated 'Good with Outstanding features' by OFSTED in June this year.

Mr Spencer said: "I'd like to congratulate all of our students and their families on these very pleasing results.
