Wrenn School and its students were celebrating their ‘best ever’ A-Level results this morning, Thursday.
Over 45 per cent of entries were grade B or higher, and 92 per cent of the students gained at least three ‘A’-levels.
Bennett Haworth’s achievement in gaining two A* and three A grades caught the eye, and these were enough to secure him a place at Cambridge University to study Natural Sciences.
Nisha Lad, Tarun Sampat and James Blake achieved four A*/A grades, with Freddie Davidson and Alex Murphy achieving three.
Particularly strong subjects this year included mathematics (where 41 per cent of the grades were A*), English literature, English language, art, media studies, sociology and psychology – an interesting mixture of traditional and more modern subjects.
Headteacher William Thallon said: “It has been a privilege to educate the young people in this cohort. They have done themselves, their families and the school proud. They have very promising careers ahead of them. On their behalf, I would like to thank and congratulate their teachers, who have worked so hard to support them.”
He added: “Pleasing though it was to set a new school record, we hope that next year we will do better still. Judging by the excellent results obtained by Year 12 at AS-level, that is a strong possibility.”
