ALMOST three-quarters of GCSE students at Gillotts School in Henley achieved five A* to C grades, including English and maths, this year.

Figures released today show the figure was 74 per cent, down seven per cent on last year's record of 81 per cent but still better than the 72 per cent achieved in both 2012 and 2013.

Twenty-four per cent of all results were A* or A grade, down from 42 per cent last year. Ten per cent of students achieved eight or more A* or A grades, down from almost a third last year.

Thirty per cent of all pupils achieved A or A* in maths with 83 per cent of pupils achieving a C grade or better.

In English language 77 per cent of students achieved a C grade or better with 23 per cent gaining an A or A*.

More than 50 per cent of grades in biology, chemistry and physics were A* or A.

Headteacher Catharine Darnton said: "I am very proud of all that the students have achieved and would also like to recognise all the support they have received from their families.

"These results come about through successful collaboration between student, teachers and parents."

A full story on all the GCSE results from the Henley area, and pictures, will be published in next week's Henley Standard.
