STUDENTS at The Vyne Community School were celebrating after 66 per cent of pupils gained five GCSEs between A* and C.
But as The Gazette went to press, the school had failed to provide its benchmark figure.
Deputy head Mark Kingswood, who is poised to become headteacher within weeks, said: “I am always, obviously, very proud of our students.
“This year group have been at the school while it has been on this journey of improvement and have had to respond to the demands of GCSEs at what was a very difficult time for the school.
“They have worked incredibly hard and they have done it with smiles on their faces.
“They deserve all the great grades they have achieved.”
Among the top achievers was head girl Bekkie Sherwood, who gained three A*s and seven As.
She said: “I am really pleased. I’m happy I got an A* in Spanish, because I only started Spanish two years ago.”
She said she plans to go to Queen Mary’s College next year to study biology, chemistry, maths and Spanish.
Her friend, deputy head girl Ruby Crane, was also pleased to have bagged seven As, two Bs and one C.
She said she hoped the grades would help her in her goal of a career in science.
Another high-achiever was Zac Thomas, who gained five A*s and four As.
He said he was pleased with the results and plans to study the three sciences, maths and further maths at Queen Mary’s College.
