Overall, almost half of the A level exams taken were graded A* or A, and five of this year’s final year students have places at Oxford. The Headmaster, Andrew Johnson, said: “This year’s students have done really well, with the majority securing places at excellent universities. They should be proud of their achievements, which are the tangible result of their hard work and determination”.
