But there was no need to worry, with top grades at both Outwood Academy Valley and Outwood Academy Portland improving by three per cent.

Seventy-nine per cent of pupils at Portland achieved five A*-C grades, including English and maths, with 76 per cent at Valley.

Dr Phillip Smith, associate executive principal at both Portland and Valley, said: “It has been another amazing year. The results keep going up and up. It is about team work.”
