GCSE results: Central Foundation Boys’

PUBLISHED: 12:54 20 August 2015 | UPDATED: 12:54 20 August 2015

Students at Central Foundation Boys’ were celebrating a bumper set of results which put their school in the top 10 per cent in the country for performance this morning.

A whopping 78 per cent of pupils achieved the benchmark five A* to C grates including English and maths.

In other figures, 86 per cent of the cohort achieved A* to C in English, 89 per cent got A* to C in maths and 76 per cent clinched an A* to C in science.

One in three students achieved at least three A* to C grades.

Headteacher Jamie Brownhill said: “Central Foundation believes every young person can be successful whatever their starting point or background and our results demonstrate that we have made this belief a reality.

“In September, many of our students will be joining Central Foundation Sixth Form and we expect to see them knocking on the doors of the country’s top universities and employers in the next few years.”
