Staff at Mayfield School were “very proud” after their A-level results went up from last year.

Approximately 79 per cent of the school’s A2 pupils achieved A* to C grades, while 82 per cent of the A2 pupils and BTEC students combined took away A* to C grades.

Allison Greenwood, the deputy headteacher of Key Stage Five, said: “We are very proud of them. The students and staff have worked really hard over the last two years.

“The majority of our students applied to go to university and we are really pleased.”

Hardeep Sambi, the head of year, added: “I think we were more nervous than they were! They have done so well.”

Monica Naher, 18, was not successful in applying for medicine courses, but she was feeling “excited” after bagging an A* in biology and As in chemistry and psychology.

She said: “I was shocked. I didn’t expect biology to be that high - I expected to fail that one!”

Despite being disappointed when her university application was unsuccessful, Monica believes a gap year will be a rewarding experience.

She said: “I will reapply next year, but this year I will be working in Cambodia for a few months.

“I am excited and actually think it is a blessing in disguise.”

Anitha Mohanan, 18, was also pleased after achieving Bs in psychology, law and history.

She will now study psychology at Aston University in Birmingham.

She said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw my grades. I am excited to go and buy all my books now!
