Headteacher Mr Lee Jarvis was ecstatic when calculating the results of the 139 GCSE students who completed their GCSEs this year at St. Martin's School. 

Records were broken in every category, meaning that more students than ever will have achieved the required grades to move onto their chosen career routes.

This exceptional performance is particularly pleasing for the students and their families who have worked in partnership with St. Martin's staff throughout the year to help secure these impressive results.

92% of students achieved 5A*-C grades, the highest number ever achieved by the school. This was 4% above the school target and 12% higher than the previous year.

63.3% of students gained 5A*-C grades including English and Mathematics 10% higher than the previous year and once again the highest the school has ever achieved.

Every student studying at St. Martin's school achieved at least 5 GCSE grades

The number of students achieving the top grades of A and A* rose higher than any previous year with an 8% increase to 26% achieving 5 A or A* grades.

Furthermore 10 students achieved straight A or A* grades at GCSE

The all important core subjects, of English, Mathematics and Science all attained their highest ever set of results, ensuring that those students graduating from the school are better prepared to move onto the Sixth Form, employment and further education.
