Headteacher Simon Marshall said: "We'd like to congratulate our leavers of 2019 who have achieved impressive results this year.
"The new reformed, linear A-levels aim to be demanding and challenging, and we are delighted that so many of our leavers have done so well and have obtained places at their chosen universities.
"We are proud of the achievements of all our pupils; even if the most common grades achieved were A*s and As, for some achieving Bs or Cs has been a great success and the product of sustained hard work.
"As ever grades on their own cannot do justice to the wide-ranging talents and abilities of this year-group, and they will leave behind them great memories of their achievements on the stage, the concert hall, on the games field and in the other numerous activities in which they have participated.
"We wish them all the best for the future."
