The science department at St Francis’ College in Letchworth deserves a pat on the back after all students received an A* in chemistry and biology in their A-level results today.
There was also a 100 per cent A* or A pass rate in German at St Francis’, where 47 of all grades were A* or A. Eight girls got at least an A in every subject.
Top performers include Luwaiza Mirza, who is set to start studying medicine at King’s College London in September – she got three A*s.
She said: “I’m really thrilled with my results, and I cannot thank my teachers and my year group enough for supporting me throughout my time at St Francis’ College.”
Angelica Wolanska, who is off to Oxford to read languages, added: “The teachers have been a massive part of getting the results. All the extra work that they put in to support me was amazing.”
