Woodbridge High School pupils are celebrating after provisional results showed 72 per cent of them got five or more A*-Cs in their GCSEs this year.

However, a smaller number (65pc) achieved five or more A*-Cs including maths and English, according to data from Redbridge Council.

Nationwide, just over two thirds (68.8pc) of entries scored A*-C, up 0.7 percentage points on last summer, according to statistics published by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).

In total, 61.7pc of English entries scored a C or higher this year, down 1.9 percentage points from last summer – a fall thought to be the biggest in the qualification’s history.

Maths saw an opposite result, with 62.4pc of entries gaining an A*-C grade, up a massive 4.8 percentage points on 2013.
