Over 90 per cent of pupils at St Albans School have attained grades A* - B for the sixth year in a row following today’s A Level results.

Nearly all students opening their envelopes found they contained A* - C grades, with student Ben Hemsi receiving four A*s confirming a place at Oxford University.

Achieving three A*s and an A, James Kirsch and John Saunders will both take up places at Oxford to study engineering.

Among the students, 22 achieved at least two A* grades and almost half attained at least one A*.

Headmaster, Jonathan Gillespie, said: “I am delighted with this year’s A Level results and how strongly our Upper Sixth Formers have performed.

“These results once again reflect the dedication shown by our pupils, as well as our teaching staff’s commitment to their success.

“My warmest congratulations go to our leavers together with my very best wishes for their future.”
