GCSE students set school records

THREE schools in the Henley area have celebrated their best-ever GCSE results.

Gillotts School, Langtree School in Woodcote and Highdown School in Emmer Green all beat their own previous best performances.

This mirrored the results nationally as about 68 per cent of all exam papers scored A* to C grades, up by 0.7 per cent on last year, although there was a dip in English grades.

There were jubilant scenes at Gillotts School in Henley where 81 per cent of the 180 GCSE students achieved five or more passes at grade C or above, including English and maths, shattering last year’s record by almost 10 per cent.

Across all subjects 87 per cent gained five or more passes at A* to C.
