This year has seen the best set of GCSE and IGCSE results yet for the Harborough district-based Leicester Grammar School.

The 122 pupils who sat GCSEs at the Great Glen school achieved 100 per cent passes in five subjects or more, including maths and English.

A school record 46 per cent achieved A* grades and an impressive 77 per cent gained A* or A grades.

And 93 per cent were awarded A* to B grades and 98 per cent A* to C grades, meaning just 2 per cent of all grades were below a C.

Four pupils achieved ten straight A* grades as well as an A^ [a double A* for those who sit an extended further maths paper].

This outstanding set of results demonstrates the academic ability of the students combined with their hard work and that of the staff, said the school in a statement this morning.

Furthermore, this year group has enjoyed great success on the sports fields as well as in musical and drama performances, it said.

Head master Chris King said: “I am thrilled with this year’s outstanding GCSE results.

“I look forward to welcoming back the overwhelming majority of the GCSE candidates, as well as a record number of new joiners, to study for their A-levels and contribute to the wider life of this school’s thriving sixth-form.”
