Eleven top performers will be taking up a place at either Oxford or Cambridge, while six more have been accepted to a range of medical schools.

The A*-E pass rate was once again 100 per cent.

Headteacher John Hartley said he was “delighted” with the results.

“These outstanding results have been achieved through a combination of an immense amount of hard work by the students, consistently very high quality teaching and a system of personalised tutorial support focused on maximising the achievement of each individual,” he said.

Among the top performing students were Catherine Crawshaw-Brown, with 5A*s, and Nicola Bailey and Luke Diana with 4A*s. Ben Cooper, Melissa Drake, Sam Hobson, Giuseppe Jafari, Elisabeth Kerr, and Edric Ramirez-Valdez all achieved three A*s or better.
