TWYFORD CofE High School students were celebrating today when they received the news that 88 per cent of their GCSE grades were C or above.
Half of the pupils at the school in Acton achieved passes in the challenging English Baccalaureate subjects compared to last year's national benchmark of 27 per cent.
And eight students earned a place in the top five per cent of the country with their 12 straight A* and A passes. They are Vivi Russell with 13 A*s, Michael Jenks and Joel Martin with 11A*s, Joe Gilbert with 10A*s, Tashi Chadwick and Ryan Beedour with 9A*s and Harry Sarson and Norman Faizul with 8A*s.
About 77 per cent of students achieved A* to C in English and maths.
Associate headteacher Karen Barrie, said: "This is a really creditable result bearing in mind the uncertainties in marking over the past 12 months."
