The headteacher of a Lichfield School has praised the hard work of students after securing a 100% GCSE pass rate for the eighth year running.
Lichfield Cathedral School saw almost 20% of pupils collect A* or A grades.
Headteacher Susan Hannam said: “I am so proud of everyone for what they have achieved. They thoroughly deserve these strong results which are the platform for students to continue their educational careers in the sixth form.
“These outcomes are a result of the hard work of the students, the support of their family and friends and the dedication of the staff at the school.”
She added that the results for French, Spanish and German were particularly strong, with 45% of all GCSE language grades being either A* or A.
Among the school’s top performers were:
- Lucy Windsor – 6 A* and 4 A grades
- Anisha Jordan – 4 A* and 4 A grades
- Henry Wade – 6 A and 4 B grades
- Max Middleton – 4 A and 6 B grades.
Susan added: “Whilst acknowledging the substantial achievements of the most able is very important, what gives me the greatest pleasure is the consistent progress that our students make irrespective of their ability or starting point.
“Behind every set of examination results is a personal story of hard work, commitment and perseverance which we are delighted to celebrate.
“I feel very privileged to be a part of such an inspiring school community.”
