John Tuson, Bede’s deputy head, said: “Great education is partly about academic results and that’s why I am delighted to see so many students achieving at such a high standard.

“However, it would be a pretty dull school that focussed only on capricious public exam results and pretty dull young people whose only focus was on such outcomes.

“That is why I am even more delighted that Bede’s students are equally committed to learning for its own sake, to playing, performing and competing, as well as to creating and imagining.”
