King James Academy in Royston congratulated Year 11 students on their "excellent" GCSE results.
A statement from the school said: "Students have shown unprecedented levels of resilience and dedication to their studies having overcome the challenges they have faced throughout their GCSE learning."
King James’ students will be going on to a range of post 16 courses across many different colleges and education providers, including over 10 per cent of the year group studying mathematics at A-level.
The academy’s curriculum saw students attaining grades and qualifications from subjects as diverse as music, art, drama, Spanish, all sciences and business studies.
All students left the academy with a range of qualifications and are excited about their next step. Students are taking advantage of the wide range of courses available. This year's alumni will be studying courses such as vehicle mechanics, catering and media as well as traditional A-levels across all disciplines.
Pupil Charles Brandon said: “I’m pleased with my three grade 9s."
Hannah Barnes looked to her future, saying: “I'm pleasantly surprised and am looking forward to studying maths, further maths, economics and physics at Hills Road."
