PUPILS at Nobel School in Stevenage are celebrating a 97 per cent pass rate at A level.

A number of students excelled with straight As. High flyers include Bethan Jones and Avir Patel, who both achieved four As, and Oliver James and Samuel Lee-Grantham, who both secured three-and-a-half As.

Bryony Dent, Laura Henning, Teniola Olasupo, Emma Stanley and Emma Walton are all celebrating gaining three A grades.

Alistair Craig, headteacher, said he is delighted with this year's results, which show a "significant increase" in points awarded per entry. "Almost all students will be going on to further education at their chosen university or college," he said.

"These results are testament to the considerable hard work and commitment from students, staff, and often parents as well, who give support through the pressures of the exam period.

"We are very proud of this continued tradition of excellence and achievement.
