This year’s cohort selected a greater proportion of A-levels to vocational level 3 courses than usual, and this was the first year of the more rigorous A-level examinations.

In spite of the greater pressure on students, they still managed to improve on results from previous years with 30 per cent of all entries being graded A* - A, 62 per cent graded A* – B, and 80 per cent graded A* – C.

The results enabled students to access a wide range of higher education courses and advanced apprenticeships, including 11 students earning places at prestigious Russell Group universities.

Headteacher Peter Baker said: “These excellent results reflect students’ high attainment at GCSE two years ago and I am really pleased with them.
