Pupils at Dame Alice Owen’s School in Potters Bar were jumping for joy after another successful set of A-level results.
Students and teachers were delighted after 94.1 per cent of grades were A* to C, up 0.3 per cent on last year, and 82.1 per cent were A* to B, compared to 80.7 per cent.
Fifty-five per cent of grades at the Dugdale Hill Lane school were A* to A, compared to 55.5 per cent last year.
A particularly high achiever was Charlotte Campbell, who was “super happy” after scooping 4 A*s in maths, further maths, economics and English literature.
The high-flier said it was a stressful period before her exams, but was glad the hard work paid off in the end. She also heaped praise on her teachers, especially her English teacher Ms Roberts, who helped boost her interest in the subject.
