Almost all students from The Weald School passed in all subjects and are celebrating the best A-level results in the school’s 56-year history this morning.

More than 99 per cent of all subjects were passed, with more than one in three of those were either A*s or As.

Meanwhile 81 per cent of all grades at were at A* to C, and 60 per cent of all grades at A* to B.

Headteacher Peter Woodman said: “We are really pleased to see that the hard work of students, staff and parents has paid off. It is fantastic to achieve our best ever results but even more satisfying to see the looks on student faces as they have opened up their results.

“Achievement across the whole ability range has been fantastic.”

Top performers included Steph Westcott who achieved A* in all four subjects, Ollie Howarth with three A*s and one A, Jack Murphy with two A*s and two A grades and Eric Richardson with three A*s and two As.

Lydia O’Sullivan achieved the two A*s and one A that secured her place at Oxford University to read Politics and History.

Head of sixth form Tom Backshall added: “We are pleased that so many students have hit their target grades which have allowed students to get into the university of their choice or enter their next phase of education or training.”
