Longridge Towers pupils Charlotte Coats, Hester Garratt and Sarah Renner jump for joy after collecting their GCSE results.

Brainy Longridge Towers pupil Angel Fang achieved full marks in her further maths GCSE exam.

When she collected her results last week Angel, from Dalian, China, also received a letter from the AQA examination board congratulating her on being one of eight students to achieve full marks in her further maths from an entry of over 21,000.

The recent GCSE results for the fifth form pupils at Longridge Towers School produced a pass rate of 84 percent at grades A*-C with 37 percent of the grades at A* and A.

This beat the national average not only in the A*-C ratings but especially in the A* awards, where Longridge has more than doubled the national average of 6.7 percent by achieving 15.3 percent A* grades.

Headmaster Tim Manning said: “With all the recent changes to the GCSE examination systems we are delighted with such a good set of results.

“It has been a very positive step to change to the IGCSE in the sciences as well as adding further maths as an IGCSE option.”

Mr Manning added that many of the pupils deserve a special mention, in particular Hamish Miller from Belford who achieved six A* and three A grades as well as one A* with distinction in further maths; Hester Garratt from Ladykirk who achieved eight A*, one A and one B grade, and Angel Fang who, together with her A* with distinction in further maths, acheived five A* and four A grades.
