Dozens of year 13 students anxiously opened their envelopes to discover if they had made it to their chosen university or apprenticeship.
But the nerves soon turned to joy as a record number of pupils achieved grades of A* or A while the overall A*-C rate remains at 82 per cent – the same as 2017.
The school’s overall pass rate stands at 98 per cent.
Top performers included Eve Pope who secured four A*s and is heading to study natural sciences at the University of Cambridge, while Amy Jackson will study earth sciences at the University of Oxford after achieving three A*’s.
