Students and teachers were delighted after 94.1 per cent of grades were A* to C, up 0.3 per cent on last year, and 82.1 per cent were A* to B, compared to 80.7 per cent.

Fifty-five per cent of grades at the Dugdale Hill Lane school were A* to A, compared to 55.5 per cent last year.

A particularly high achiever was Charlotte Campbell, who was “super happy” after scooping 4 A*s in maths, further maths, economics and English literature.

The high-flier said it was a stressful period before her exams, but was glad the hard work paid off in the end. She also heaped praise on her teachers, especially her English teacher Ms Roberts, who helped boost her interest in the subject.

Charlotte is set to study economics at the University of Cambridge, and hopes to eventually become a financial journalist.

Another happy teen was Callum Mason, who picked up an A* in religious studies and As in history and maths, which was enough to get him into the University of St Andrews, where he is set to study philosophy and theology.

“I was so done by the end of the day,” said the relieved youngster. “I’m glad to feel free and relaxed.”

Headteacher Hannah Nemko said: “These fantastic results are testament to the consistent hard work, drive and determination of our students as well as that of our exceptional staff.

“In this time of numerous changes to the examination system, our commitment to ensuring the success of each student has remained strong.

“Once again, we are all very proud of what our young people have achieved.”
