Students at Daventry’s Parker E-Act Academy were celebrating their GCSE results.

This is the first set of results the school, formerly known as William Parker, has received under its academy status.

The school saw a significant increase in both English and maths results, achieving the highest percentage ever – set against a national trend of falls in results for the two subjects.

A school spokesman said: “We are very pleased with the results that our GCSE students have achieved this year.

“We are delighted that 16 per cent of our students achieved 9 or 10 good GCSEs at grades A* to C.

“There were also a number of individual success stories.

“We would like to congratulate all our students for their hard work and effort in the lead up to the exams.

“We look forward to working with many of these successful students in our sixth form in September.”

However, students awaiting their results in German face a longer wait, the exam board has yet to release their results leaving teenagers with ‘pending’ on their grade cards.
