Pupils at Monk’s Walk School in WGC “rose to the challenge” after a GCSE exam shake-up this year, the headteacher has said.

Results released today (Thursday) reveal 69 per cent of youngsters picked up five GCSEs at grade C and above, including English and maths.

And 19 students gained eight or more A*s and As.

In the maths department, 80 per cent of grades were A*s to Cs.

Headteacher Kate Smith said: “We are delighted with this set of results.

“We were a bit worried in the face of national changes which saw students assessed largely by exam only.

“However, the students rose to this considerable challenge and I am proud of them all.
