Headmaster at Verulam school, Paul Ramsey, said he was delighted to see the boys buck the national trend, adding: “It is testament to the hard work of our boys and staff that the percentage of A/A*grades achieved rose, whilst nationally there was a significant decline.”

While Marlborough School applauded their students’ “terrific” results and said they were looking forward to welcoming back many pupils to sixth form in September.
