Pupils at Pitsford School are celebrating another year of success.

More than 51 per cent of A-Level results were A or A* grades and 80 per cent achieved grades A* to B, with one third of pupils achieving three A grades.

Nervous pupils had an early start, waiting until 6am until they were able to log in and download their results.

Head of School Curtis Hodgson flew back from travelling around Europe to receive his results, and said: “I was so chuffed with my results and excited to realise that I had been accepted into my first choice university, York, to study economics and philosophy.”

Amrit Sidhu-Brar, Curtis’ travelling partner, achieved two A* and two A grades at A-Level, earning him a place at Oxford University to study physics.

Jamie Bickers achieved the same and will be joining him at Oxford to study maths.

Headmaster of Pitsford School Noel Toone said: “It has been another year of great success for the pupils and we are all extremely pleased that the hard work and efforts of both pupils and teachers have been rewarded with such excellent grades.

“Congratulations to all of our pupils.”
