Twenty seven students achieved at least 3 A* or A grades in their subjects.

Last year’s results were classified as ‘outstanding’ in national terms: this year, they are even better.

Based on their achievements, most students will be able to take up their preferred choices at apprenticeships or work, and the vast majority will progress to universities including Cambridge, Durham, Exeter, St Andrew’s and Warwick.

Head teacher Jill Silverthorne said: “It is superb to see our long-standing tradition of success continuing. Students have achieved outstanding results today across a very broad and challenging range of A-Level subjects.
