Each student gained an average points total of more than three A-levels at A grade or equivalent.

The top-performing student achieved four A* and one A grade while another achieved three A* grades.

Many others were awarded exceptional individual results and all subjects had a 100 per cent pass rate.

One Year 11 student sat the A-level maths exam two years earlier than normal and achieved an A* grade.

Boys and girls performed equally well across the board in the 30 subjects offered at Brooke Weston’s sixth form.

More than 80 per cent of the Year 13s are going to university with the remainder going into employment or a gap year.

An impressive range of prestigious university places have been secured including medicine at Cambridge, maths at Durham, dentistry at UCL, law at Sussex, sport at Loughborough and zoology at Manchester.

Principal Trish Stringer said: “Once again our students have done themselves, and us, proud.

“This is a stunning set of results that ends a particularly successful year for the academy.

“We are proud of our thriving sixth form which offers students every support and encouragement and the students, in turn, have delivered these fantastic results.

“I am always extremely grateful for the high levels of dedication teachers extend to all students at Brooke Weston.

“I am particularly delighted that so many prestigious university places have been achieved in such a wide range of courses which reflects exceptionally well on the quality of careers guidance and the maturity of student decision making.

“Each and every one of our students, whatever their individual aims and aspirations, has performed superbly and I can confidently wish them all the very best in their future lives and careers.”
