More than 100 pupils (half the cohort) achieved A or A* in each of their A-level subjects in summer 2017 while the Upper Fifth managed 900 A*s and 82 grade 9 GCSEs.
The GCSE results also revealed that four boys and four girls achieved a perfect score of 99 A*s between them!
Individual success include Jessica Olliver, who was born profoundly deaf. Jessica achieved an impressive eight A*s and one A in her GCSEs. She said her results show deaf children can overcome the stereotype of underachieving.
The 16-year-old, who had cochlear implants at aged two and eight, said: “Because I hear significantly less than others then I have to work more to be able to hear what the teacher says, so I have to strain more in classes and sometimes get more tired than others. There is the stereotype that deaf people can’t do as well as others so I wanted to prove that was wrong.”
Twins Dan and Ben Pluck achieved an astonishing 18 A*s. Dan got 10 A*s and two sevens in English literature and language, while Ben gained eight A*s, an A and nine and eight in English.
In A-levels, top performers include Sam Lu, who scored an astonishing five A*s in chemistry, computing, maths, further maths and physics.
Syrian refugees Sulaiman Wihba scored four A*s in maths, further maths, chemistry and physics and Elias Badin who studied the same subjects and got A* and three A grades respectively. Both young men endured torturous journeys to get to the UK two years ago, with Sulaiman stowing away in a refrigeration lorry surrounded by boxes of frozen chips to get here.
After her Lower Sixth year two years ago, Phoebe Pickering was diagnosed with cancer. She had completed her AS in English when she got the diagnosis. She had to take her Upper Sixth year off school but decided to carry on doing the coursework she would have done at school while she was having treatment in the US. In summer 2016, on the basis of how good her AS marks were and the coursework she did whilst having chemotherapy, she was given an A* at A-level. This summer she completed her remaining two A-levels in Latin and RS and scored a further two A*s
