Spires youngsters are getting their results!
Pupils at Wallingford School have recorded the school's best ever GCSE results. There were 190 pupils taking exams and 75 per cent got five A* to C grades with English and maths. Headteacher Wyll Willis said: ''These results are stellar - they are at the top end of what we could have hoped for.''
Of Cheney's 221 GCSE pupils, 80 per cent achieved five A* to C grades. Headteacher Jolie Kirby has expressed her delight at the school's maths results, but said she is "deeply concerned" about an apparently anomalous English language unit which has brought some marks down. An investigation is promised.
At Oxford Spires Academy, 57 per cent of pupils got at least five A* to C grades including English and maths, up from 41 per cent last year, its first year of results. Headteacher Sue Croft says she is 'ecstatic'.

Pupils starting to trickle through at Matthew Arnold School. 71% got A* to C grades, 60% if you include maths and English.
A few pupils here at Magdalen College School with 9 A*s who were disappointed to get an A in history. Seems to have been a tough test for the school this year.
Magdalen College School reports 92 per cent of pupils got A or A*s while nine got ten or more A*s. All got A* to C.
