Stonehouse's Wycliffe College is celebrating one of its best ever sets of GCSE results, equaling its 2017 record.

No fewer than 94% of its pupils secured five or more grades at 4 or higher - with 4 out of 5 grades being at 5 or higher. 

The private school, which prides itself on a non-competitive ethos that takes into consideration the best for each student, saw 58% of pupils obtain a 5 or higher in both English and Maths.

Huge congratulations go to Wycliffe's top performer Charlie Jones who achieved eight 9s and two 8s.

From Wycliffe's large cohort of local pupils, Hannah Shakir-Apps from Stonehouse received an equally outstanding seven 9s and three 8s.

Millie Porter from Malmesbury obtained five 9s and five 8s and Evie Green from Wootton-under-Edge achieved three 9s and five 8s.

Brendan Ind from Stroud, recent recipient of a prestigious Design Technology scholarship, got three 9s and two 8s alongside the rest of his grades. 

Wycliffe's headmaster Nick Gregory said, "The challenge of coping with the varied and constant workload of numerous GCSE subjects has not always been easy.

"It takes perseverance, determination and in several cases, genuine courage.

"These qualities have been rewarded with this set of results.

"We are very proud of our pupils."
