Like many other schools this year, Barnwell has chosen not to release headline percentage figures because new tougher specifications are making it difficult to compare results with previous years.

But the school released a statement saying the governing body and staff are “immensely proud of the achievements sixth-form students building on the success of last year’s results as grades continue to rise.”

It added: “This year’s A-level results are very strong and have seen an increase in a number of A and A* grades across many subjects. The students were delighted with their results and have secured their places at universities across the country.”

High achievers include Herveline Cremmer, who achieved two A*s and three As, Charlotte Benney with three A*s, Georgia Barnes who got three A grades, and Emily Arnold who achieved a triple distinction at BTEC.
