GCSE school exam results were results published last week, strong across Hertfordshire, but very mixed in Welwyn Hatfield.

Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School achieved easily the best results of any state comprehensive in the borough, improving on last year by six per cent to hit 79 per cent scoring the benchmark five A* to C grades including English and maths.

Headteacher Theo Nickson said: “I am very proud of all the hard work of our students and staff.

“The girls work very hard, and the teachers really support them.

“I am particularly pleased about the progress made by our disadvantaged students”

But results deteriorated at several schools, including Stanborough, once supreme in the borough, but now, at 54 per cent, below the national average of 57.3 per cent hitting the benchmark.
