A-LEVEL RESULTS: Thomas Alleyne School, Stevenage

THE future is bright for Thomas Alleyne School students, with more than 90 per cent of its pupils already securing university places and jobs and the remainder confident of a university place through clearing.

There are 39 pupils in Year 13 at the school, with 29 of those applying for a university place. The other 10 all have secured apprenticeships and jobs.

Of those students, Tom Smith got an A* and two Bs, which was good enough to earn him a place at Durham University to study Criminology.

Julia White, who got an A*, an A and a B will go to Loughborough to study English.

One student set records all round in her AS-level results. Rebecca Burge got As in physics, biology, English and music - the first time any student at the school has ever achieved four straight As at that level.
