Students achieved a 99% pass rate – 77% of them being A*-C grades and 51% A*-B grades. 

Mr K Blower, Head of Sixth Form, said: “It has been another good year for A-level results. Overall, we had a 99% pass rate and there were some fantastic individual results.

"In particular, our students achieved some very impressive Maths and Science results this year. We achieved 4 A*s in Chemistry and 3 A*s in Maths, which is a fantastic achievement in some very demanding subjects.

"More than 100 students are now expected to move on to university after securing the grades they required, the vast majority of them securing their first-choice places.

“They have worked extremely hard and I wish them all the very best of luck as they go on to the next stage of their lives."

Among the students celebrating fantastic A-Level results are Bernice Johal and Kaylum McCann (pictured above). Former Head Girl Bernice achieved an A* in Maths, an A in Chemistry and a B in Biology. She is now going on to study Medicine at Aston University and was recently interviewed by the BBC about her success on the ‘Pathways to Medicine’ programme at Aston Uni.

Kaylum achieved an incredible three A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics and is now preparing to study Physics at the University of Manchester.
