A Wimbledon school has announced improved GCSE results today.

Boys at Rutlish School in Wimbledon achieved 70 per cent A* to C grades this year. 

Ten star pupils achieved straight A* or A grades. 

David Grant, deputy head, said: "We are absolutely delighted. Our grades are five per cent higher than last year."

Some schools have reported a fall in English Language grades, but Mr Grant said changes to exams were not reflected in Rutlish School results. 

The school has yet to deliver a more detailed break-down of results.
