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

“At a time when examinations are being made ever more challenging, our students have responded by getting some fantastic results.

“We are also very pleased to see our students move onto a variety of post-18 pathways, including studying our specialist subjects of maths and computing at some of the top universities in the world.

“Many other students have also been accepted at other respected universities to study a wide range of subjects ranging from nutrition to art and music to ancient history.
