And a minimum of five A*-Cs were obtained by 84pc when the two core subjects are not necessarily included.
Head Tracy Smith said: “We’re feeling proud. They’re a good set of results as expected.
“We predicted the results we got - the kids delivered ... They’ve worked hard and achieved well.”
Ninety-seven per cent got five or more A*-Gs, the council said.
