Pupils and staff at Hampshire Collegiate School (HCS) are celebrating today after receiving the school's best ever GCSE results, with rises across all headline measures.

An impressive 93% of pupils gained five or more A*-C GCSEs including English and maths a strong leap of 10 percentage points on last summer.

This improvement was visible across the board as the proportion of pupils earning the very top A* and A grades this summer climbed four percentage points to 39%.

Last week HCS also celebrated its best ever A Level results when the proportion of entries achieving A* and A grades rose 10 percentage points to an impressive 34%, with 17% of all A Levels earning the top A* grade.

Emma Kate-Henry, Principal of Hampshire Collegiate School, said:
'I am thrilled with these GCSEs results, which cap an excellent two weeks for us in which we also achieved the school's best ever A Levels. These grades are fitting reward for the very hard work of our students and staff and we look forward to celebrating as a school in September when our Year 11s return as Sixth Formers.'

Amidst the whole-school success, some notable individual achievements stood out, including:

* Emily Watson, Compton, Winchester achieved 10 A*s and 1 A grade. She said: 'I am very happy.'
* Stuart McClune, Landford, Salisbury achieved 9 A*s and 2A
* Polly Hooton from Lockerly, Romsey gained 8 A*s and 3 As said: 'I am really happy!'
