All pupils at the Broadway-based girls school passed their exams with more than a quarter bagging A and A* grades.

Star performers included Louise Balcombe who received three A*s and head girl, Hannah Danbury, who will be attending Oxford University.

Head Bronwen Goulding said: “I am thrilled with the success of the girls this morning. Such an outcome is a testimony to their commitment to their studies.

“I am delighted to share in their excitement. I am so pleased that the college and its staff have prepared the girls so well for the future.”
