Successful students turned Priory Community School in Weston into ‘Jubiland’ today.

The jubilant PCSA students have yet again excelled to make the school one of the best in Britain, thanks to a stunning set of record-breaking GCSE results considerably above national averages.

As many as 70% of the students – much higher than the expected UK average of 55% – gained 5 A* – C in GCSE English and maths.

Some 88% of students gained a C+ in English and 81% secured a C+ in maths, a rise on last year’s figures of 78% for both.

And in perhaps one of the best performances achieved by a state school nationally, a whopping 32% of English students achieved an A* or A grade; while 15% did the same in maths – both Priory records.

In the school’s 40th birthday year, the results again make Priory one of Britain’s best on the back of an Outstanding Ofsted rating in every single area.

Principal Neville Coles comments: “All subjects have performed superbly again. We have our best-ever GCSE English and maths results.

“English C+ is at 88% and Maths C+ at 81%. We are delighted with 15% A/A* in maths and an amazing 32% A and A* in English.

“The 2015 whole school 5AC figure is 70% and this gives us a 5-year average of 70% as well! This is considerably above the national average.

“All staff, parents, Governors and community contribute to this success – well done to all involved at Priory.”
