Eastwood Comprehensive School headteacher Mark Pickford said: “I am delighted with the achievements of students of all abilities across such a wide-range of courses.

“Our future is in safe hands with such a remarkable group of young people, my congratulations to them all and their families.

“David Hill, our Chair of Governors, was over-the-moon this morning and wanted me to pass on to all students and their teachers how incredibly proud he is and that he sees the results as a credit to the hard work of both students and staff at the school.”

Thirty-six per cent of students at the school achieved at least one A grade, with 54 per cent achieving at least one A or B grade.

Kimberley School headteacher Chris Teale said they had also secured record-breaking results this year.

He added: “The A-Level results this year represent our best ever for the school and we are extremely proud of our Sixth Form students. 

“I am particularly pleased that the students have gained the highest ever number of A* and A grades which has enabled several of our students to gain places at the country’s top universities.

“I am also delighted that the hard work shown by so many of our sixth formers has paid off and been translated into so many individual success stories with the majority of our Year 13 students heading for university, whilst others have gained exciting employment positions.”
