A PASS rate of 99 per cent was achieved by this year’s A-level students at Lawrence Sheriff School.

Despite government changes to the qualification, students improved on high grades of previous years, with 70 per cent of entries gaining A*-B grades.

One student has gained a place at Cambridge and six others are progressing on to medical or veterinary courses.

As in previous years, around 98 per cent of students are expected to move on to Higher Education, with the remained proceeding to some form of apprenticeship.

Headteacher Peter Kent said: “I am delighted that our results are even higher than last year’s very strong performance. I would like to congratulate students and staff on working so hard to make these excellent results possible.”
