It has been a record year of A-level results for the John Henry Newman School in Stevenage.
More than a third of all grades gained were A* to A.
Some 58 per cent of all grades at A-level were A* to B – an increase of five per cent from last year.
The average grade gained by students studying BTEC and CTEC courses was a distinction star.
The vast majority of students gained places at their universities of choice, and there were many outstanding individual achievements which the school will celebrate at its annual awards evening.
