A2 students at Sir Christopher Hatton Academy have this year attained an excellent set of results including a 98 per cent pass rate, alongside a further increase in the proportion of students achieving top grades of B or above.

The majority have planned to go onto further or higher education and the results will allow them to do this.

Top performers included Daniel Cumley with A* and two As in product design, maths and physics), Piumi Nikawala Widanalage with A* and two As in chemistry, maths and biology and Joe Bellot with A*, A and B in maths, further maths and computing).

Many others have combinations that were very close to these top results with 43 per cent of all entries graded as B or above.

Particular strengths at A-level were in English where 60 per cent of students achieved grades A* - B and in mathematics where more than half of students achieved a grade A* or A.

In further mathematics, 80 per cent of students achieved grades A* - B and in RE, more than 60 per cent of students achieved grades A* - B.

For students taking the academic route of A-levels only, 27 per cent of entries were graded A* - A (up 9 per cent) and 65 per cent were graded A* - B (up 18 per cent).

70 per cent of students who undertook the extended project achieved grades A* or A.
