Eighty per cent of papers were given A* to C grades this year, up 14 per cent on the 2015 total, with over half graded at A* to B.

Officials say that means the vast majority of students have secured places at their first choice universities.

And all students who took vocational programmes achieved at least a distinction in their courses.

Principal Jane Horn said: “The tremendous hard work of both students and staff has paid off and I am delighted with the results they have this year.

“So many of our students can now progress onto the next stage of their lives with the positive outcomes they worked so hard to achieve.”

Among their top performing students was Isaac Smy, who has been accepted to read history at Oxford University after achieving an A* and two A grades.

Josh Doncaster received three A grades and Emily Doyle and Ellen Garrett, both gained an A and two Bs.
