BARCLAY School in Stevenage believes supporting its students through their A-level exams contributes to their positive results.
Headteacher Janet Beacon said: "Everybody has got into their university of choice so for us it's really positive and was in line with what we expected.
"It was a joint effort by our students and teachers and I think we are also very pleased we have put extra support in, in terms of monitoring and keeping in touch with students and that seems to be improving our achievement and the numbers of students that stay on the course.
"I don't believe exams are getting easier. Our students work very hard and so does the staff.
