Whitley Bay High School saw its best results, with 100 per cent of students passing.

"The last 12 months have seen significant changes to A Level qualifications, with very little exemplar material available to staff and students, so to see a healthy increase in our overall pass rates against a difficult backdrop and tougher qualification framework is an outstanding achievement and a true testament to the hard work of both staff and students alike".

Monmouth Comprehensive School has also spoken of its "delight and pride" for A-level students today.

For the government's Academic Performance Measure of A* - C grades, 98% of their students achieved this measure.

"I think our success this year proves that we offer a curriculum that meets the needs of our students and also the the world of work". She is going to Oxford University to study theology.

Justin Edwards, head of the north's CCEA exams board said he believed there was plenty of "head room" for further inflation in grades in years ahead without hampering universities' ability to choose between pupils. Our tailored approach to Sixth Form education and our broad offering of both traditional and modern A Level options has allowed our students to develop their passions and individual future paths.

Other impressive results include Stephane Anscombe (Plumbing Apprenticeship), Callum Bateman-Champain (Sports Science, St Mary's University College), Lauren Bonwick-Adams (Paramedic Science, Surrey), Gabriel Bryant, Deiniol Cummins, Frances Demetriades (Psychology, Goldsmiths), Morgan Harris, Tom Jex (Business, UWE), George Simpson (Sport Science, Chichester) and William Smith (Sport Science, Kingston), Tom Wood (Sports Business and Sports Law, Buckinghamshire), Bertie Woodcock (Business Economics, Liverpool) who got 3 or more A* and A grades including BTEC qualifications. As a city we should be really proud of the fact that we have seen our number of A and A* grades grow since previous year.

Headteacher, Eliot Wong said, "I am so pleased that our largest ever cohort, following the full range of A level and BTEC subjects, has once again achieved exceptional results". Luca Lota's 3 A*s secure his place at Durham to read Physics, and Ben Ainslie will read Veterinary Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College, having gained A*AA.

Lou Baker, its head of school, said: "We are really proud of our students getting such good grades and going to university, especially as so many are the first generation in their families to go. I feel really accepted", he added. Many students who join us with low grades from former schools have left with results they could only have dreamed about. In line with a year ago, 15% of the grades awarded were A*/A, with well over 50% of total grades were A*/B.

Principal Carol McCann said 92 per cent achieved at least three C grades or higher saying this continuing success was die to the "unfailing commitment of the students and staff and support of parents and their commitment to their daughters' education". The students have worked very hard to take the challenges in their stride and they should be congratulated for their efforts.
