Six sets of twins at one Bristol school have achieved 87 A* and A grades between them at GCSE level.

They are all studying at St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School, where results have increased by 6% this year.

Among their results Dorothy and Florence Hislop, 16, from Bishopston, scored 13 A*s and six As between them.

Dorothy, who gained seven A*s, two As and a B, said her friends had been very nervous as they had been told grades were slipping this year.

Florence, who achieved six A*s and four As, said she was really surprised at getting an A in maths as the exam was difficult.

Charlotte Hook said she had been worried she would not do as well as her twin brother Marcus but achieved two A*s and six As.

"I'm really pleased with what I achieved," she said.

Between them the pair, from Southmead, recorded eight A*s, 10 As, one B and one C .

Charlotte added it had been a "huge relief" they had both done well.

George and Sam Price, 16, from Bedminster, who both have Asperger syndrome, achieved six A*s, four As , six Bs and three Cs.

Both now plan to study maths and science.
