Mark Pollard, Headteacher at Bishop Perowne, said: "We're delighted with the results that have been achieved. Our students who took GCSEs this year were collectively below the national academic average when joining the school, so their record-breaking achievement deserves to be celebrated and they should all be extremely proud of their accomplishment. We anticipate that our Progress 8 score will be positive again this year, demonstrating our students have achieved more than expected.

"The results are testament to the hard work and commitment everyone has put in to driving higher standards across the school and striving for higher achievement over the past few years and we wish all students the best of luck with their future endeavours."
