Rhys told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “A-levels were hard but they were the next logical step for me to take after doing my GCSEs.”

Peter Brown, headteacher said: “We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements this year.

“In a climate of examinations being made ever more difficult, our students have responded by getting some of the best results the school has seen at A-level.
