Exeter School, the city's largest independent school, is celebrating another excellent set of GCSE results.

Almost three-quarters of all grades - 73.65% - were grades 9-7, compared to the national average of 20.6%. 

Of the 118 pupils in Year 11, 67 achieved 8 or more 9-7 grades with 36 pupils scoring ten or more 9-7 grades.

Leading achievers Ollie Bennett from Tiverton, Emma Halford from Teignmouth and Tom Harris-Deans, Adam Wajed and Casper Kelly from Exeter each scored ten 9 grades. 

Musical twins Rose and Grace Sail between them scored a remarkable 18 grade 9, one grade 8, one grade 7 and an A* in Further Maths.  Sporty Oscar Cobb from Exeter achieved nine 9 grades.

Exeter School pupils have recently returned from two memorable school trips held over the summer holidays: an expedition to Borneo and a music tour to Liguria in Italy. Many of them are celebrating great results today.

Headmaster Bob Griffin congratulated his Year 11 pupils on their consistently high results, for which they worked very hard.

He thanked their parents for supporting them on their busy journey and praised the teaching staff for their dedication and expertise.
