The students gathered at the Tower Road school last week to get their grades.

A school spokesperson said: “St Killian’s students who have received GCSE results are to be congratulated in an unprecedented year of school closures, remote learning and cancelled examinations.

“The success of our students is a reflection of their hard work, dedication and maturity together with the expertise, effort and enthusiasm of the teaching and support staff. This year’s outcomes highlight the fact that non-selective education continues to deliver excellent results for all.

“We are incredibly proud of our students. This has been a challenging year for all students and the disruption to education has been felt most keenly by those who should have taken their final exams this summer.

“Our GCSE students have delivered an impressive set of results. 93 per cent achieved five plus A*-C, with 81 per cent achieving five plus A*-C, including English and Maths. Furthermore, we are exceptionally proud of the fact that 73 per cent of students attained seven plus A*-C grades including English and Maths, while 14 students achieved at least 10A grades at GCSE and 25 students attained at least seven A*/A grades.

“Our outstanding set of results can mainly be attributed to the commitment and hard work of our students and the dedication of our staff, as well as the support that we enjoy with our parents.”
