In line with the national picture today, GCSE results at Reepham High School and College were down on last year.

But principal Mark Farrar still had plenty of praise for his students.

A total of 60pc of students achieved five or more A* to C grades, including English and maths and 75pc achieved five or more A* to C grades in any subjects.

The first figure is 9pc on the school’s results last year but 3pc higher than in 2010.

The latter figure is 4pc down on last year and 8pc down on 2010.

Mr Farrar said: “These are an excellent set of results for this particular year group and when combined with our A-level results it has been a good week for the school and college.

“Our pupils follow a traditional academic curriculum and more than 22pc of all grades were A* or A.

“I would like to thank the staff for their hard work and the parents for their support and to congratulate every single pupil on what they’ve achieved at Reepham.

“Particular mention must be made to Ruby O’Gray and Imogen Homs who both achieved 10 A*s, and to Robert Allen, from year eight, who gained an A* in maths three years early.”

Robert will study A-level maths next year.
