Mark Sutton, Principal, said: "At Charnwood College we are committed to delivering the highest academic standards and our students should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved. 
 
"Our GCSE results are continuing to strengthen. Across almost every measure we have seen four years of consistent progress in our GCSE outcomes, and this year we have accelerated that trend.
 
"Levels of progress across English and maths continue to rise, while attainment across other core subjects is also consistently strong. 
 
"Five of our most able students, for example, managed to secure an incredible 45 A* and As between them. This is an outstanding achievement in itself." 
 

Among the students celebrating was Eloise Kirk who achieved 4A*, 6A and 1B grade. She said: "I've achieved my personal goal today and I'm delighted with my results. I'm looking forward to starting my A-Levels and hope to go to University to study Law."

Matthew Storr gained 4A*, 4A and 2B grades. Matthew said: "I'm so relieved that the wait is over and I'm thrilled with what I've achieved. It is beyond what I could have imagined." 
 
Wendy Marshall, Chief Executive of the David Ross Education Trust, added: "The GCSE and A-Level results achieved at Charnwood College mark the end of a very impressive year at the academy.
