There were a number of high fliers at Bishop Luffa who achieved A*s and even managed to get A grades in AS-levels.

86 per cent of pupils were awarded at least five A*-C grades, and 82 per cent gained at least five GCSE grades A*-C including English and Maths, while 40 per cent of all entries were awarded A* or A grades.

Five pupils, Esmé Ash, Andrew Cresswick, Max Lowther, Flora Murphy and Toby White swept the board with nine A* grades apiece.

Esmé, Andrew and Toby also excelled by gaining an A grade in their AS Theology exam.

Headteacher Nick Taunt said: “It’s good to see our young people celebrating: they deserve it.

“This was a strong year group academically. But it takes more than simple intelligence to do well: they have also demonstrated an enthusiasm and sense of fun, and a commitment to knuckle down and to work together.

“The high-fliers are rightly celebrated, but many of those who find lessons difficult have also come out with grades beyond their expectation. I am very pleased for them.”
