Wellingborough School has again enjoyed a good year of A-level and AS results.
A statement from the school said: “We continue to be really proud of our pupils, some of whom have built on modest GCSE and AS results to perform very well in the exams for which the results are published today.
“Whilst attention in the media often focuses on those achieving the highest grades many of our pupils have achieved, through hard work and support, results which are well above what may have been expected in view of their prior performance.
“They deserve our congratulations.
“Our strength across the breadth of subjects offered at Wellingborough is indicated by over a quarter of our pupils taking Art, Business Studies, Economics and History gaining an A* at A Level.
“38 of our 80 pupils gained at least one A* and we have maintained our A* grade performance at over 17% of all grades.
“The results overall have led to many successful admissions to the most competitive universities and courses, including Agriculture, Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Mathematics and Economics.
“At AS, top results were again achieved with 42 of the pupils gaining at least one A grade.
“Over a third of all results in Art, Chemistry, Economics, Latin, Maths and Politics were at Grade A.
“The Extended Project Qualification is an increasing strength of the school with seven of the 11 entrants gaining an A or A* in the lower sixth.
“We wish all of our pupils future success whether, as in the vast majority of cases, this is in Higher Education or to those who are off directly to new ventures in the workplace.”
