A school being investigated for alleged malpractice, amid claims that pupils were given answers to their GCSE exams, have been cleared of all accusations.
Examining body Edexcel launched an investigation into Deansfield School in Wolverhampton.
It is believed the complaints centred around the suggestion that a number of students were segregated from other pupils, taken into a room and given answers during this year’s GCSE exams.
But Edexcel, which is one of the biggest examination bodies in England and Wales, today said it has found ‘no evidence to substantiate the allegations’. The news comes after hundreds of students at the school collected their GCSE exam results.
The school, which opened in 1968, has 593 pupils on the roll and was rated ‘good’ in its last Ofsted report.
It is one of the schools set to benefit from the £270 million Building Schools for The Future grant that is being spent on Wolverhampton.
