It is headteacher Mary Ireland’s last A-level results day, as she is leaving at the end of August.
She said: “I am delighted that so many students have got really positive results allowing them to follow their chosen courses at university.
“These results are really encouraging and reflect the continuing hard work put in by our teachers as well as the pupils themselves.”
