Students achieved the Sixth Form’s highest ever average points score of 36 – which means the average grade was a B.

The percentage of grades A*-C was 85 per cent, the college said, which equalled last year’s record-breaking results.

Principal Hugh Hennebry said: “We are thrilled and jubilant at another outstanding year of A-level results.

“We are so proud that our students have risen to the challenge of more difficult examinations and done so brilliantly.

“They have had more demanding concepts to understand but through sheer hard work and reading around the subject, they have gained deep knowledge.

“Our A*-C figure of 85 per cent shows that almost all students achieved the life-changing grades needed for university and future careers.”

“Well done to everyone who made today’s results the success it is.

“We wish every student who finished Sixth Form with us this year all the very best for a happy and fulfilled future.”
