FOLLOWING last week's record-breaking A-level success, students and teachers at Mount Grace School waited nervously for the final GCSE results.
They needn't have worried, as the Potters Bar school saw a fifth successive year of improvement.
The 5+ A*-C score was 67 per cent - up five percentage points on last year - and including English and maths the score is 37 per cent (35 per cent in 2007).
This means that over two thirds of students at Mount Grace have qualified to study at A-level next year.
