The principal of Latimer Arts College says the college is celebrating another year of improvement in its A-level results.

While results saw a slight decrease at a national level principal Siobhan Hearne said the college’s had gone up.

She added: “I seem to say each year that these are the best results we have had and this year again the average point score per student has gone up.

“I think it is down to the hard work and commitment of students and the effort that the teaching, and non-teaching, staff put in.”

Among those celebrating at Latimer College were Ryan Leder, 18, from Broughton, who received an A in RE and Bs in drama and English literature.

He will be studying creative writing and drama at Edge Hill University in Lancashire.

Ryan said: ”I feel really happy. I kept waking up last night and couldn’t get back to sleep.”

Kade Purbrick, 18, from Kettering, got As in music and maths and a C in drama.

He will be studying maths and music at Keele University.

He said: “I have been able to get a scholarship because of the A grades so I am really happy about that.

“I was a lot calmer than I thought I would be this morning but now I think I’m going back to bed.”
