Thirteen per cent of grades were A*, with 39 per cent either A* or A. More than two thirds of passes were A* to B.

New headmaster Chris Staley said: “I am very pleased with the 100 per cent pass rate and the majority of students have got their first or second-choice universities.

“There are some outstanding results, with 13 per cent of the grades being at A* and 39 per cent at A* and A.

“Over two thirds of the passes were at the top three grades – A*, A and B – which would see the students into top-class universities for the courses they would wish to read.”
