The latest GCSE league tables have shown an improvement in most schools’ performances in the Daventry district.
The tables, which were released by the Department of Education on Thursday last week, reveal the top achiever for the area were Campion School in Kislingbury Road, Bugbrooke.
Some 78 per cent of the school’s pupils attained five or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and maths.This was compared to 70 per cent of pupils who achieved the same standards last year.
Headteacher Claire Whitmore said: “We are thrilled with results and they are the best the school has ever had.
“I think the results come down to the hard work by the young people here and also the staff who have worked very hard tohelp them achieve it.
“A big thanks has to go to my predecessor Bob Clayton who oversaw a sustained improvement in the school throughout his time.”
There was success too for Guilsborough School as their pupils achieved even better than last year and also exceeded both the county and national figures.
Some 74 per cent of pupils attained five or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and maths, an increase from 71 per cent last year.
The Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village saw 52 per cent of pupils reach the same standards, slightly down from last year’s figure of 53 per cent.
The Parker E-ACT Academy had 47 per cent of pupils reach the same standards, compared to 46 per cent last year.
