Pupils at Ryburn High bucked the national trend of falling GCSE pass rates to achieve the school’s best ever results.
Headteacher Honor Byford said: “Following the excellent A Level results last week, Ryburn is celebrating again. School records have been smashed having achieved a phenomenal 72% 5A*-C including English and Maths-an increase of 11% on last year.There are some fantastic individual results with 1/4 of our students obtaining 5 A* and A grades.
“This achievement is a credit to everyone at Ryburn and I am very proud of all our students. Well done!”
