Rhys Jose, 18, of Welwyn Garden City, picked up his results this morning to be greeted with an A in English literature, an A in English language and a B in History.
The Stanborough pupil is now looking forward to starting his apprenticeship in the civil service later this year in the department for communities and local government.
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.
“We are especially pleased to see so many top grades being achieved by our students.
“This is down to the effective partnership between student, teacher and parent.
“All have played their part magnificently.”
