A summer of waiting came to an end this morning, as students tore open envelopes to reveal their grades.

Almost two thirds of grades in English and maths were 9-4, while high standards were achieved in subjects like philosophy, statistics, history, biology, and Spanish.

Tara Harvey was the school’s top performer, achieving a clean sweep of nine grade 9s which ranked her in the top 0.5 per cent in the country, while Dexter Mott and Peter Hadley earned six 9s.

Headteacher Justin Humphreys said: “These fantastic results are a credit to this year group who, in spite of a more challenging curriculum and different assessment format, have coped admirably.
