Students from Fakenham College have secured university places at Oxford and Cambridge for the seventh straight year thanks to their A level successes.

A total of 71 per cent of entries achieved A* to C grades this year, up three per cent on the 2015 figure.

Lianne Higgins, the college’s head of sixth form, said: “We are delighted for our students, who have achieved another excellent set of A Level results.

“Although we continue to be very much a school for our local community, our students’ results stand comparison with those of schools anywhere in the country.

“Our Year 13 students have achieved some of our best A Level results in recent years and many are now going on to some of the top universities in the country.

“It is the seventh successive year in which Fakenham College students have secured Oxbridge places.

“Well done to all of our students for their hard work and achievements.”
