Students were also picking up their English Baccalaureate results, which were above national average.

Principal Phil Munday said: ‘We are delighted that so many students have achieved outstanding results. However recent changes to the core GCSE subjects make it increasingly difficult to compare year-on-year grades.’

The Year 11 Head Boy Sam Wood, 16, was among the students picking up their results.

Sam, of Catisfield Lane, Fareham, got six A*s, four As and one B and is off to study A-levels at Barton Peveril College.

He said: ‘I’m feeling really happy that I have achieved what I wanted to achieve.’
