Smithdon High School, in Hunstanton, has achieved its best ever set of A-level results with 67 per cent of grades being A* to C.
That was a nine per cent improvement on last year, when the school achieved 58 per cent of grades at A* to C.
A total of 97 per cent of the school’s grades were A*-E passes.
Jon Goodchild, headteacher, said: “The school has made rapid progress in every area during the last five years. However, it is essential that the students are able to capitalise on these improvements by achieving better examination results.
“This year’s excellent A-level results are a testament to our students and the support they have received from the staff.
“The leap in the percentage of students gaining the highest grades at A-level is excellent news for the school as well as the students themselves.
“I am delighted to record the fact that these results are a significant step forward and easily the best the school has achieved.”
Top performing students were Harriett Boyd who got four As and one A at AS level; Joshua Twaites, with one A*, two As and one C at AS-level and Laura Thomas with two As, a B and a B at AS-level.
Laura, of Heacham, whose grades have secured her a place to study zoology at Sheffield University, said: “I’m over the moon. You never really know when you have done the exams. You think they have gone alright but you’re never quite sure and it’s a long time to wait. It has been a bit stressy. It’s your whole future hanging on those grades.”
