The headteacher of Eckington School has congratulated his Year 11 students on their ‘excellent’ GCSE results.
Patrick Cummings said his students had done ‘exceptionally well’ and had matched national scores in English and mathematics at A*-C (or 9-4 as they are now called).
In Science, A/A*and A*-C results exceeded national results and across all subjects total awards at A*/A jumped to nearly 20%.
