Out of 134 candidates, particular congratulations go to the 79 boys who achieved all A*, A, 9, 8 and 7 grades, and the 19 boys who got A*, 9 and 8 grades in all their GCSE subjects.
Alasdair Kennedy, Trinity’s Headmaster, said: “We are proud of the results that this year group have achieved.

They can move to the next stage of their education with real confidence.”
