Headteacher Mrs Hewlett-Parker said: “These results are exceptional; our students have excelled this year.

“As our specialist subjects are mathematics and science we are particularly pleased that a phenomenal 90 per cent achieved an A*-C grade.”

Science has also had a bumper year, with 96 per cent of students passing two or more science subjects at grade C or above, with many other subjects also making significant increases this year.

“This is a reflection of the expertise and dedication of our staff,” added Mrs Hewlett-Parker.

“We anticipate a high number will return to the sixth form to continue their studies with us in September.”

There were exceptional individual student results - Kimberley McDonald passed 12 subjects at A*, with Benjamin Jowett and Lucy Thomas each passing nine subjects at A* and two at A grade.

Mrs Hewlett-Parker said: ”I am proud of all the students.

“They have worked extremely hard to achieve their target grades at all levels.
