GCSE results 2019: St Peter's School, Huntingdon
Students at St Peter’s School are celebrating after receiving their GCSE results today.
The students’ results have significantly improved compared to last year, with three times as many grades being the highest possible grade 9.
38 grades awarded were the highest 9 grades, awarded to the very highest performers in the country for each subject.
This is a significant improvement on the 13 received last year.
The school is also expecting to see, when the validated results are published later this year, that the core subjects of English and maths will have performed above the national average.
Almost 100 per cent of students achieved a grade 5 or higher in the three science subjects of biology (97 per cent), chemistry (97 per cent) and physics (97 per cent).
