The head teacher of an inner city school in Nottingham, under pressure from the Government to improve, says he is delighted after achieving their best ever GCSE results.
The Department for Education (DfE) sent Djanogly City Academy a pre-warning letter earlier this year. The school was told to do better or face the possibility of the Government imposing a new sponsor.
This year, 43% of students attained five A*-C GCSEs, up from 34% last year, and above the 40% benchmark set by the Government.
Head teacher Andy Kilpatrick said it was still too early to say how the DfE would respond, but denied the warning had put extra pressure on staff and pupils.
