Christ Hospital students, in Horsham, should feel ‘real pride’ in their A level results, the headmaster said.
Pupils and staff are celebrating as 11 per cent of all pre-u and A level grades were equivalent to an A* with 61 per cent of grades at A* to B, according to the school.
Out of 121 pupils, 40 A* or equivalent grades were achieved with 22 pupils gaining at least one A*.
One in five pupils achieved strong grades in four or more a levels, the school added.
Headmaster Simon Reid said: “Our pupils’ results testify to their strong embrace of learning opportunities over many years; they and their teachers, and everyone who has supported their time at Christ’s Hospital, deserve the warmest congratulation.
