There was 'delight', and nervous nail bitting, at Falmouth School this morning as pupils arrived to collect their GCSE results.
The students started arriving just before 9am ready to tear open envelopes to see the results of all their hard work.
The school says it is 'delighted' to report that 80 per cent of the pupils achieved at least five A* to C grades, with over 300 of the grades at A* and A.
Saying that the vast majority of pupils making "excellent progress from their starting point on entry to the school five years ago", with 66 students gaining 10 or more grade C's or better, and 13 students achieving a stunning collection of ten or more A* or A grades.
Sixty per cent of students gained five or more A* to C grades when English and maths are included, which the school says meets the targets based on the "prior attainment" of this year's cohort.
Patying tribute to the efforts put in by students, and the support given by the teachers, Brett Miners, headteacher at the school, said: "These results reflect the commitment and hard work of the students and the quality of teaching guidance and support from the staff. It is a pleasure to congratulate so many students on making such good progress through their GCSE's. Many of the students will be returning to join Falmouth School Sixth Form College in September and we look forward to building further on their achievements.
Retiring headteacher Sandra Critchley added her praise, saying she was delighted to hear the results, adding "I pass on my congratulations to all of the students in Year 11."
Among the high achievers this year were Ben Crombie (12A* and one A); Oliver George (9A*'s, 4A's and one distinction* grade); Holly Elvans (9A*'s and 4 A grades; Ruby Harrop (8A*'s and 4A grades, Morgan Roberts (7A*'s and 5A grades and Grace Holland (7A*'s and 4A grades).
