The hard work of teenagers has paid off at The Kimberley School after they recorded record-breaking results in this year’s A-level exams.

Nerves were jangling as students opened their envelopes to reveal their grades yesterday (Thursday).

But at Kimberley’s Newdigate Street campus, the news was overwhelmingly good.

For results were the best ever recorded there with those achieving A*-C grades hitting 67.9%.

That’s an increase on the 63.7% who met that standard last year.

Kimberley head teacher Chris Teal commented: “We are very proud of our sixth form students, their dedication and commitment to their studies has paid off and they have been rewarded with some very well deserved, excellent results.’’

Among the star performers at the school were seven students who gained three A* or A grades in their results with two students achieving three A*s and an A.

In a group of six who sat the Maths A2 subject, there were four A*s and two As.

Student Tom Pretty is among those off to university and will read engineering at Oxford.

Unfortunately the results for Eastwood Comprehensive School are not currently available.

But as soon as we have them they will appear on our website, www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk.
