Weavers School pupils achieved the school’s best ever A Level results this year.
Headteacher Jon Davis said: “There has been a 12 per cent improvement to grades overall this year with a substantial increase in the proportion of top A* to C grades, with 10 students achieving three A grades or more. This success has ensured that the vast majority of students have secured their first choice places at university or in their chosen career path.
“All students achieved in line with their target grades, with some excellent individual results.
“I am very proud of the dedication and commitment demonstrated by my students in achieving these results. Their fantastic work ethic has paid dividends. I congratulate them all and wish them every success during their university life and beyond.”
