This resulted in enormous amounts of work for colleagues, with each child being assessed regularly in all subjects.

Mr Baker thanked colleagues for their work in recent months as the increase to workload and the level of scrutiny was far greater than originally expected.

He added: “A special mention goes to each of our Middle Leaders, who have worked tirelessly to ensure the integrity and validity of these results.

"As such, we are sending children to college with total confidence in their ability to work, learn, study and develop in their chosen courses.”

Tom Cubbon, deputy headteacher, said: “We want to congratulate the children for their individual performances, as well as what they have achieved as a group.

"Each result tells its own story. Like always, we have many, many students with the highest possible grades, but we are equally proud of those students who have surpassed their targets

and shown determination to the do their very, very best.

"The school has worked closely with the local Sixth Forms and Colleges to make sure that students had ambition, purpose and direction.

"Their performance at interview and the results that followed are testament to the wonderful way in which students develop at LSA.”
