Borough principal Lois Fowler said: “Well done to all our students who have worked hard to achieve these fantastic results. In a year when many A-level subjects changed, our students have been well supported and proved that they continue to do very well and achieve high grades.

“It demonstrates the hard work and dedication of our students towards their studies and our teachers in helping them achieve the high grades they need to secure good university places.”

The school also said it was pleased with the students’ achievements in law, with 80per cent of sixth formers gaining A*, A or B grades.
