Meanwhile, 84.5 per cent received A*-B grades.

Headteacher James Priory, said: ‘This is a great accomplishment for our pupils, particularly given the climate of stricter A-level marking this year.

‘Through their hard work, the majority of our A-level pupils today, along with our International Baccalaureate pupils, have achieved a university place of their choice which is superb news.’
