Daisy Michelmore, 16, grandaughter of the late BBC television presenter, Cliff Michelmore, who died earlier this year, was one of many to pick up their results.

She got one A*, seven As and two Bs.

Daisy said: ‘My grandfather would be so proud.

‘I am surprised and delighted.’

The school saw 91 per cent of girls receiving A* to B grades – and all of the results were A* to C grades.

In French, all students received A* or A grades while all students who took computer sciences received an A*.

Headmistress Jane Prescott said: ‘We credit our success to the hard work of our specialist teachers, disciplined classes and highly-regarded traditional courses, which give our girls a firm foundation for economic excellence.

Isobel Clark, a keen sailor was one of the school’s big successes, receiving 10 A*s.

She said: ‘I am so shocked but happy with my results.’

Isobel is now going to study maths, further maths, history and French at A-level.
