A DROP in year-on-year results at Cams Hill School was expected, the acting headteacher has said.
The school, in Shearwater Avenue, Fareham, this year had 62 per cent of students receiving A to C grades.
Acting headteacher David Lowndes said: ‘We were expecting a drop in results this year, despite the teachers and the students working very hard.
‘We are analysing the results to find the effects of the government changing the rules of the game in the middle of play.’
It was not all bad news for the school, with many students achieving exceptional grades.
Laura Kent, 16, got straight As - three A*s, five As and an A* in a short course - and said she was over the moon with her grades.
Laura, of Oxford Close, Fareham, said: ‘I didn’t think I was going to do this well at all, I’m so pleased. My parents were really shocked, but they are really proud.’
