ST Antony’s deputy head, Adrian Hurley, paid tribute to the college’s GCSE students.

He said: “They can be justifiably proud of their results as they achieved a very creditable 80% 5 A* - C grades at GCSE.

“Several students excelled themselves, gaining an impressive array of grades – Colette Nikpavlovich achieved 8 A* and 5 A grades, Salman Arain was awarded 7 A* and 2 A grades and Amy McLaughlin achieved 4 A* and 2 A grades. Well done to all our students.”
