The average number of points scored per student jumped and more young people then ever got into some of the country’s leading universities.

Agota Geciauskaite, who spoke no English on her arrival from Poland nine years ago, has been offered a place at Oxford but has chosen to go to Warwick to study medicine after securing two A*s and an A.

Sandra Peter, Fiona Menzies and Bartosz Wojciechowski are also all securing places at Russell Group universities after securing some outstanding results.

Toby Mullins, Executive Headteacher, said: “This is a fantastic day for Malcolm Arnold Academy.

“Over 70 students are leaving with the equivalent of Bs across the board, which is an incredible achievement. This shows that more and more of our students are reaching new heights and meeting increased expectations.

“I would like to commend the staff and students for all they have achieved, we should take immense pride that we can now categorically say that our results stand alongside some of the best schools in the region.”

Wendy Marshall, Chief Executive of David Ross Education Trust, said: “Once again these results show the progress that the academy is making.

“Year on year we are seeing continued and sustained improvements, and each milestone further reflects that Malcolm Arnold really is becoming a huge success story.

“Our vision is that this does not stop here. Over the coming months we have a Hollywood screenwriter working with students to produce and perform a play, more sporting opportunities than ever before and an enhanced focus on bringing the best that the independent schools offer to our students.”
