SPIRITS were high at Henry Cort Community College as students picked up some ‘outstanding results.’
The school in Hillson Drive college, Fareham, saw 63 per cent of students receive A* to C grades, and 42 per cent achieve gold standard A* to C grades including English and maths.
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.’
