Headteacher David Hudson said: “I am absolutely delighted with these wonderful results, particularly in a year when the marking has been more stringent.

“Such fantastic grades are only achieved on the back of a lot of hard work and I am so pleased to see that our students’ commitment and dedication have paid off.

“I would also like to thank the teaching staff who have prepared the students so well, both in normal lessons and in the huge number of revision sessions put on in their own time.

“The vast majority of students will now be able to move on to their chosen A-level courses and we look forward to further success for them over the next two years.”

Tom Furber, from Buckingham, is going on to study French, German, Economics and Chemistry at A-level.

He said: “I’m surprised and pleased. I got quite nervous beforehand. I’m happy now.”

Ciaran Walter, from Newton Longville, was there with his mum Maeve.

He said: “I did better than I expected. I’m really pleased to be staying on for sixth form.

“I was really nervous but I feel better now.”
