“With the new style A level exams, which the government has clearly said needed to be harder, our students have continued to achieve in line with previous years,” he added.

Top of the class for individual achievement were:

Nicholas Brown, who achieved an A* in mathematics, B in further maths, B in physics and a C in chemistry.

He is now going to Kings College London to read physics.

Lydia Frost will read psychology at Kent University in September after she achieved an A in psychology, A in sports studies and a C in biology.

Lillith Nelhans celebrated an A in biology, B in English and a B in history.

She also achieved an A* in her EPQ, and is preparing to go to Newcastle University to read history.

Lauren Simson is off to De Montfort University to read pharmaceutical sciences after her A in mathematics, B in biology and D in chemistry.

Sabrina Walsh achieved A in English, A in history and B in sociology. She’ll be welcomed at Kent University to read English and American literature.

Mr Whelan concluded: “We are delighted with the performance of all our students.

“Each one of them worked hard to maximise their potential and we wish them all every success in their chosen pathways.

“We should acknowledge the support they have had from their families and also the tremendous work done by both primary and secondary teachers to prepare students for these tougher exams.”
