SALENDINE Nook High School's GCSE results were well above the national average, its annual awards ceremony was told.
Pupils who took their GCSEs this summer were presented with their certificates.
Headteacher Christine Spencer said 58% of pupils received A* to C grades and 97% achieved A* to G grades.
She added: "These results are well above the Kirklees and national averages."
Mrs Spencer said technology results had improved drastically, science had a 100% A* to C pass rate and, overall, 72 A* grades and 313 As were gained.
Awards for outstanding academic achievement were given to Hannah Pearson, who got nine A*s and 1.5 As, Abigail Fenton, who got four A*s and 7.5 As, Naheed Anwar, who got five A*s and 5.5 As and Darren Bailey, who got six A*s, 3.5 As and one B.
The .5 grades represent GCSE short courses in religious education or IT.
Mrs Spencer went on: "I congratulate you all. You have every reason to take pride in your achievements.
"You did have some obstacles to overcome, not least the disruption caused by the building programme which took two years to complete."
The contract for refurbishment was with Jarvis, which is refurbishing 20 mainstream schools in Kirklees.
Mrs Spencer said: "Many classes were dispatched for weeks to mobile huts. Young people got used to noise and dirt. Yet to their credit they performed extremely well.
"On a positive note, they have bene- fited from specialist facilities and remodernised rooms."
Mrs Spencer said the school had undergone much change in recent years, including becoming a specialist technology college in 1997 and being given Beacon status in 1999.
This means it is a centre of excellence, which shares its good practice with other schools in Kirklees.
The school was also given a Sportsmark award this year for its high sporting standards.
Mrs Spencer said much of the success was due to the hard work of staff and governors.
She said: "I am very fortunate to have an extremely dedicated and hardworking staff and governing body.
"The students also deserve to share in all these awards. School, of course, is not just about academic success and I hope you will have happy memories," she added.
