Principal Robert Robson said: “I am delighted by the results this year. Our sixth form has grown massively in the last few years and in September we will have 500 students.
“I am very pleased that our results have not diminished with our growth and in fact have improved on last year’s set. I congratulate every one of our students, their hard work has paid off.
“Behind each set of grades are hundreds of individual stories of achievement and the students and staff have worked very hard to gain so much success.
“It has been a hugely competitive year for students to get into university and I am really pleased for all the students who set their sights on a university place and have achieved it.
“A number of our students have already got themselves fantastic career paths worked out and their grades will really help them to succeed in the future.”
