As the new 9 to 1 numerical grading system was introduced across the country, 23% of entrants in the new reformed subjects – which accounted for two-thirds of all exams – and 34% of entrants in the non-reformed subjects achieved the top grades of 9 or A* against the average in England of 4.5%. In the non-reformed subjects, 57% of grades were A* or A.

As a result, 31 pupils have been awarded the college’s prestigious Ten Club tie for achieving a 7, 8, 9, A or A* in ten subjects.

Twins Edward and Jack Holman are part of this cohort and will be staying on at the college for sixth form having gained four 9s and five A*s between them.

Jeremy Gladwin, head of the Maze Green Road college, said: “In a year when examinations have become considerably more demanding for both teaching staff and pupils, I am thrilled that we have not just performed well across the board but have surpassed all expectations when it comes to the new and prestigious grade 9.

“I am immensely grateful for the vast amount of hard work undertaken by the teaching body, who have been severely tested by having to prepare new courses at both GCSE and A-level.

“The pupils have responded magnificently to their expert tuition and have worked so hard to gain these impressive results.”
