Many subjects, including maths and English had an A-level pass rate of 100 per cent with special praise reserved for history in which all students attained A* and A grades.

Head girl Hannah Jeffrey, 18, was thrilled to receive two A*s and an A in history, politics and English.

Hannah said: ‘I was extremely nervous last night and this morning waiting for my results to come through. I expected lower grades so I am so pleased with my results. Now that I have my grades, I am going to re-apply to Oxford and hope to study English literature there next year.’
