Students from Holmer Green School were praised by head teacher Michael Jones for their "best ever" set of results.

In the academic subjects, 23 per cent of grades were A*-A, 58 per cent were A*-B, with 87 per cent at A*-C (10 per cent higher than this year’s national average A*-C).

The overall pass rate at A-Level was 100 per cent (grades being A*-E or equivalent). 

Vocational results were every bit as impressive with all bar six entries being at Distinction* level, which is equivalent to a Grade A at A-Level. 

The results have meant that every student has achieved their first choice of university, which include Birmingham, Southampton and Newcastle, to follow a range of courses from teacher training to management accounting.

Mr Jones said: “Such attainment is exceptional for a non-selective school.

“To be so far above the national average for attainment and record so many A*-A grades, when the average GCSE grade on entry is below the national average, shows that Holmer Green can provide an education that can produce the same outcomes as local grammar and independent schools. 

“These results are a real testament to the ambition, hard work and commitment of our students and the wonderful staff at Holmer Green. 

“I am delighted for our head of Sixth Form, Rachel Golding, and all the A-Level teachers who have transformed the quality of our Sixth Form, and raised both aspirations and expectations of what our students can achieve. 

“As one of my governors commented when I broke the news – ‘well done everyone, this is a great testament to the hard work of the pupils and staff and the amazing supportive culture that inspires our students at HGSS’. 

“I couldn’t put it better myself.”

Meanwhile Hazlemere's Sir William Ramsay’s students increased their overall A* to C grade to 61 per cent, an increase of 10 per cent on last year.
