Students at Amble’s James Calvert Spence College were celebrating this morning after a job well done in their GCSEs.
Results at the school were up on last year, with maths in particular seeing a huge climb from 2013.
Executive headteacher Christine Graham hailed the efforts of the pupils and the staff for the pleasing grades.
She said: “I am delighted. Overall, the results have gone up and I couldn’t be prouder of the students and the teachers.
“A lot of our pupils have got A*s, As and Bs and the results in maths have gone up phenomenally. There are lots and lots of higher grades in maths.
“Another pleasing aspect is that a lot of our pupils are staying on to study at our sixth form.”
Among those to shine were Sophie Walker and Daniel Cook, who were the best performing girl and boy respectively.
They recorded a fine haul of grades, with multiple A*s and As to their names.
