Students at Adcote School for Girls, near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, were celebrating exceptional A-level results today with 73.5% of results achieving the top grades of A* to A.
Nearly 58% of candidates were awarded straight A*/A grades across the board – an increase of 16% on last year’s outstanding results.
The overall pass rate was 100% with 91.8% of all results receiving grades A* to B. Sixty-nine per cent of students have been accepted for top Russell Group universities with 54% of degree courses chosen covering the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Headmistress Diane Browne said: “These results were subject to the highest levels of scrutiny and are testimony to the hard, conscientious work undertaken by our students.
“The amount of evidence that had to be submitted to support the veracity of these grades was far in excess of previous years and represented significant extra stress for this year’s cohort of A-level students.
“The resilience they had to show is a credit to them and their universities are lucky to have them. We are thrilled for them all and so proud of them.”
