Private school pupils scored four times as many top grades in their GCSEs and IGCSEs this summer as teenagers across the country, figures show.

Almost a third (32%) of all entries from students at fee-paying schools achieved an A* grade, according to data published by the Independent Schools Council (ISC).

This has risen by one percentage point on last year.
