Chris Staley, headteacher, said: "I am incredibly pleased with the A-level results this year; these are the best results we’ve achieved for a number of years, particularly the top grades 57 per cent of which were at A*- B and 31 per cent of which were A* and A (significantly higher than the national average 26.4 per cent).
" We have also improved our A* to C percentage up by 11per cent, to 87 per cent, which is fantastic.
"The overall pass rate remains in excess of 99 per cent. These results are a testament to our pupils’ hard work, and the dedication and resilience of our exceptional teaching staff plus the all essential support given by parents.
"Such grades will provide an excellent foundation for their university careers where more than 75per cent of our pupils have gained entry to their first choice university, again another first. We are particularly proud of our medical and veterinary science candidates this year.
