(Updated 11:51am 23rd August 2012)

One in three pupils gain straight A*/A grades Almost a third of pupils at St Peter's School, York, have achieved straight A*/A passes in the 2012 GCSE results.

Four pupils were awarded ten A* grades - Jennifer Frazer, Emily Gray, Natalie Mounsey and Alex Reeds, Sian Biggar, Patrick Copley, Nina Duncan, Zoe Pindar and Toby Simpson achieved nine A*and one A grade.

A total of 34 pupils achieved a mixture of A* and A grades - 30% of the year group.

As with last week's A-levels, pupils at St Peter's have seen an increase in the number of passes at A* - 35% of GCSEs were passed at the top grade, up from 33% in 2011. The overall GCSE pass rate at St Peter's for grades A* - B was 89%.

Leo Winkley, Head Master of St Peter's School, said:

"Top grades at GCSE level do not come easily: those who ran the exam marathon this year did so into a Government-imposed headwind. 

"This makes it all the more pleasing that their careful preparation has come off. 

"I'm delighted that our pupils can look forward to the challenges of Sixth Form study with such a solid GCSE platform in place. 

"Employers and universities alike are rightly scrutinising GCSEs for evidence of consistent performance.  They have done themselves and their parents and teachers proud."

St Peter's School, founded in 627AD, is one of the oldest schools in the world, and one of the UK's leading co-educational boarding schools.
