St Albans School at Abbey Gateway has described as "remarkable" the success of their eight students who have featured in top examination lists.

David Phillips came first from all 280,297 candidates sitting AQA GCSE Maths papers and three of his fellow students were placed in the top 10 candidates taking Edexcel's drama exam.

Simon Collings, Simon Dean and Michael Grimshaw had all turned in fine performances in a school production of R.C. Sherriff's classic World War One play Journey's End.

A-level students did just as well with Ben Gallop and Charles Read placed in the top 10 of Edexcel's government and politics exam. Unsurprisingly both have gone to Cambridge - Ben reading law and Charles reading history.

And two students from the school's design and technology department, John Cook and head boy Adam Wagenfield, were placed in the top 10 in Edexcel's product design A-level.
