There were sighs of relief and lots of congratulations in order as pupils discovered their GCSE results at Lymm High School.
Almost half of all students secured one or more of the highest grades at GCSE achieving an A*, and a quarter achieved three or more A* or A grades.
In BTEC courses, there was a 100 per cent pass rate, whereas, in other equivalent qualifications, 89 per cent of students achieved merit or distinction grades.
Executive principal Tarun Kapur said: “Despite a good deal of change at the school in the last year the students and staff have really risen to the challenge to produce some creditable results that enable them to move on to the next stage of their education.”
Myles Jones, who achieved one A* distinction, three A*s, three As and three Bs, was relieved to pick up his results after a long wait.
The 16-year-old from Lymm said: "They are as good as I hoped they would be. I am now looking forward to starting Lymm Sixth Form to start something different."

Since it was formed in 1984 (when Lymm Youth Club merged with Oughtrington Rovers,) the club has gone from strength to strength and has grown to 20 teams including 3 all girl teams.
The Club was awarded Chartered Status by the FA and then was awarded Community Club status in 2011.
Nowadays, we are very privileged to have all of the clubs training sessions and matches taking place within the beautiful grounds of Lymm High School.
The 2013/14 season saw a big change to the management structure of the club with the introduction of level 2 FA Qualified Coaches, with access to all of the squads.
The improving standards of the players has come to the attention of several professional clubs, with more than half a dozen children training with Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Crewe. The club is also represented within the Cheshire Girls Squads.

Fears have been raised over the future leadership of Lymm High School after it was revealed that a permanent head teacher has yet to be appointed.
One concerned parent, who has asked not to be named, says she has serious reservations about the school’s progression should it fail to offer current executive principal, Tarun Kapur a permanent contract.
She said: “Since his appointment as head teacher of Lymm High School, parents, pupils and staff have been delighted at the amazing difference which is now evident throughout the school.
"It is unbelievable that the governors will not engage Mr Kapur and the Dean Trust on a permanent basis which parents and staff know would sustain the massive improvements for the school and the pupils of the future.”
Mr Kapur, who stepped up to the role last year following the suspension of former head teacher Angela Walsh, is currently contracted to remain at the school until Christmas.
Chairman of governors Kieran Walshe said the governing body will look to appoint a permanent head teacher ‘in due course’.
He said: "We confirm there is no change to the arrangement for senior leadership support from the Dean Trust, and Tarun Kapur remains the executive principal of the school.
"Governors will, of course, need to appoint a permanent head teacher in due course, and more information will be made available at that time.
"Both the school and the Dean Trust are committed to ensuring that the progress made this year is sustained and improved next year.”
