Among the top performers at the Potters Bar school were Zack Abbatecola, Charlotte Bigg, Nicole Bissett, Arlo Francis, Terri Harrhy, Jack Hetherington, Eleanor Lawson and Jake Trounce, all of whom achieved the highest grades.

A school spokesperson said: “Mount Grace students have proved yet again how resilient they can be.”

Over half the pupils have accepted higher education places including at Queen Mary University in London, and York.

In addition, pupils have found apprenticeships and placements at companies including the BBC, Claremont Consulting and Ted Baker.

“I am thrilled that so many students have achieved their ambitions and are now going on to higher education or advanced apprenticeships.
