Ormiston Sudbury Academy’s figures rose from 41 per cent to 46 per cent, a five per cent increase following a two per cent fall the year before.

Thomas Gainsborough School in Great Cornard still has a higher average with 55 per cent of pupils achieving the benchmark figure, but this was a six per cent decrease on its 2014 results.

Fifty-seven per cent of pupils at Hadleigh High School achieved the five A*s-C.

Two years ago the school had an average of 54 per cent, at the time more than 10 per cent below the national average.

The school has seen a one per cent increase on its 2014 score.

Stour Valley Community School, a free school in Clare, recorded a six per cent increase in its results.

It’s 52 per cent figure was a large improvement on its first ever set of figures in 2014.
