The art department at Princess Helena School in Preston has been lauded after all students achieved A* or A-grades in their art A-level exams.
Sue Wallace-Woodroffe, who is headmistress at the boarding and day school, was thrilled to report that three quarters of students achieved an A* grade in English and 67 per cent of pupils bagged A* to B grades in history.
“It has been a fantastic morning giving the girls their results,” she said.
“I am thrilled at how well they have done and am delighted by the ecliptic mix of universities and courses. “I look forward to hearing about their experiences as they enter a new chapter of their lives.”
Sophie Kendall, who will be heading to Central St Martins to study fine art, said: “The art department have been so helpful, they have pushed me and didn’t limit me, I could do any project I wanted, I think this made me stand out from the crowd.”
