Lewes Priory School saw a significant increase in the number of pupils achieving high grades in Mathematics and English as students collected their GCSE results this morning (Thursday, August 20).
An improved 79 per cent of students achieved top grades in Mathematics and 80 per cent in English, both of which are essential to future progress.
The school also saw strong performances in Sciences, Languages, Humanities and the Arts.
Headteacher Tony Smith said: “We are delighted that the students’ hard work and perseverance has been rewarded with outstanding results. We are especially pleased with the progress that students have made, with more than 40 per cent making better than good progress in English and Maths.
“I would like to thank the students for their commitment and dedication to their studies. These results would not be possible without the support of parents and the dedication of staff.
“We are pleased that the vast majority of students have been able to progress to their preferred destinations.”
