Mount Grace School pupils “made their families proud” after a successful set of A-level results.

Forty-eight per cent of grades were A* to A, including equivalents in vocational courses, up two per cent from last year, with 52 per cent of grades being A* to B.

This year 75 per cent of grades were A* to C, compared to 77 per cent in 2015.

Particularly high performers were Matt Beadle; Francesca Borghi; Lauren Dixon; Tommy Festa; Ami Gauden and Kaira Lye, who all achieved an average of 240 points (an A grade) per entry or better.

Daryl Bullock achieved a Distinction Star in performing arts among his results, and said he has developed personally throughout the course.

“It was just a massive boost in confidence because I can see what awaits for me if I get things right,” he said.

Headteacher Peter Baker said: “The wide variety of courses on offer means that all students can reach their full potential.
