Students at the Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton have been celebrating getting their GCSE results.
Nearly half the pupils got 5 or more A* to C grades including English and maths which is up from 29% in 2010.
Executive Principal Toby Mullins said: "We're very pleased and happy that we've maintained the improvement that we showed last year. We're not quite where we wanted to be but this is a year of flux but we're just pleased that we've maintained that improvement and shown that we can do it."
