Record results for both A and AS Levels have been applauded at St Columba’s College in St Albans.
A spokeswoman said that records have been beaten at both levels at the school for the third successive year, despite tougher criteria for gaining top grades in public examinations being forecast nationally.
She said the Upper Sixth A-Level results were particularly impressive with the A*-B percentage at a record 77 per cent; while the A*/A percentage was 44 per cent.
Pride of place went to head boy Edward Buttler-Caddle with four A* grades in chemistry, maths, physics and further maths.
Edward will be taking up his place to read Natural Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge.
