Today, students from William Hulme’s Grammar School are celebrating another year of strong GCSE results.

These showed that 69% of students achieved five or more good passes (grade 4 or above) including English and maths.

Students also achieved strong results in the government’s Basics measure with 73% of students achieving  Grade 4+ in English and maths and 55% achieving Grade 5 +.
