Cramlington Learning Village, a teaching school which is to lose its status after it was found to be inadequate by Ofsted last month, has seen a 5 per cent rise in GCSE results this year.
The academy, which caters for 2,000 pupils in Northumberland, had 58 per cent of students achieve five or more A* to C grades including English and maths.
Headteacher Wendy Heslop, thanked all of the students and staff who “have worked phenomenally hard over the last year”.
“The commitment that they have shown bodes well for their own future and sets a fantastic example to those that follow as we look ahead to the new school year,” she said.
“We are pleased we are moving in the right direction following disappointing results in 2014 and being placed in special measures by Ofsted.”
