Pupils at Wrenn School in Wellingborough set a new school record by getting a total of 20 A* grades at A Level between them.
Kaival Patel, 18, will study at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, after getting three A*s and an A. He said: “I felt glad, I’m looking forward to going to uni.”
Sam Spacey, 18, will study physics and astrophysics at Birmingham University after getting two A* grades and a B. He said: “I’m absolutely ecstatic, it’s amazing. I have been so worried the last few weeks.”
Headteacher William Thallon said: “While we are sorry to see these students leave us after seven years, we are delighted that so many of them have done well. Many of them will be going to university where, I am sure, they will continue to thrive. They, their teachers and their parents deserve the highest praise.
“Just as pleasing were the AS-level results achieved by Year 12, whose A-C rate was the highest we have had for many years, and where a number of students achieved a clean sweep of A grades. This is a particularly good omen for next year.”
