GCSE students at Thomas Clarkson Academy have achieved the school’s best ever results.
The Wisbech school has seen improved grades for the second year running and increases in the number of students achieving passes (4) and ‘strong’ passes (5) in English and maths.
Nearly half of the students are staying on to study at the TCA Sixth Form.
There have been improvements in maths, biology, chemistry and physics, along with strong performances in modern foreign languages, English, engineering and dance.
Richard Scott, associate principal, said: “We’re very pleased to see results improve for the second year running.
“What is important is that we’re seeing a steady, sustained improvement which is opening up more options for our students.
“Something we’re particularly proud of is the progress students have made from their initial starting point.
