Staff and students at a Beaconsfield school are celebrating after coming top in the county for its A-Level results.

Beaconsfield High School, in Wattleton Road, beat other schools across the county, with 83 per cent of its students achieving A*-B grades, according to The Times’ results table.

Staff said it has also been placed as the 24th highest secondary state school in the country, despite it being the 11th least funded.

It achieved a record for its A-Level results this year, with students achieving 52.3 per cent A-A* grades, the highest the school has received in its 50-year history.

Despite reforms, this was a six per cent increase on last year’s results.

Three students achieved four A*s, including one who achieved 100 per cent in maths, and a further five students achieved three A*s.

Five students achieved the grades to go on to study medicine, attending top institutions including Imperial College, University of London and University of Nottingham. Two students will study veterinary sciences at University of Nottingham and University of Bristol, and three will study law at the University of Durham, University of Exeter and University of Sheffield.

Head teacher Rachel Smith said: “What a remarkable day for our students and our school. I am incredibly proud of everyone for their motivated learning, determination and sheer hard work.

“Our exceptional teaching and pastoral standards have anchored the students through the last two years and for this I am truly grateful to our remarkable Sixth Form team and teaching staff.

“Whatever steps the students decide to take next, I have every faith that they have the skills and mind-set to be successful.

“We now look forward to welcoming another group of highly motivated, talented and driven young women at our open events in the autumn, and to celebrating great successes again this time next year.”
