“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.
