High Tunstall headteacher Mark Tilling said staff and governors are proud of another set of extremely good set of results.

Students achieved well in English, maths and science and more students got passes in a modern foreign language.

Mr Tilling said: “We are proud of our curriculum and the way it sets our students up for their next stage in their career.

“Good quality results in art, music, drama, physical education and psychology, as well as the core EBACC qualifications means that they are well prepared for the future.”
