Headteacher Anita Bodurka said: “Students, parents, staff and governors of  All Saints Catholic College are celebrating their best ever GCSE results today. Building on the results from their early entry GCSE English, the students have gone on to achieve even more good GCSE grades across many other subjects.

“This success has come on top of improved progress over the last two years with our ‘Behaviour for learning’ policy. All Saints truly is becoming the Catholic college where students come to learn, as well as developing  their moral and cultural understanding, underpinned by our Catholic ethos.

“We wish all our students further success in the future as they go onto further studies, apprenticeships or jobs. “

Head boy Nigel Marongere only arrived at All Saints from Southampton two years ago and  has passed 11 GCSEs.

He said: “I am pleased with my results. It has been hard work, but I have developed as a student here.

“Everyone has been really friendly here and encouraged me; I definitely don’t think I would have done as well at my old school.”

He is going on to A levels at Greenhead College and hopes to pursue a career in finance.

Ciara Tucker achieved six A and four A* passes to add to the distinctions in BTEC subjects  she already has.

She said: “I am so happy, it was not at all what I expected; I didn’t think I would do as well as this.

“I spent so much time revising, and even then I didn’t think I’d done enough.”

Cyle Dumancas said he felt like crying with happiness when he saw his results.

He passed five GCSEs as well as BTech Science and Construction. Two years ago his grades were all Es and Fs.

He said: "I am on clud nine, I'm so happy I feel like crying."I have been studying two hours a night, but most of all I have listened to the teachers. They have been really patient with me and the after school sessions have really helped."

He now has a place to study A levels at Greenhead College
