For Wisbech Grammar School students, they have continued to improve despite the challenges they have faced in the last year.
Headmaster Chris Staley said: “Once again, Wisbech Grammar School (WGS) pupils continue to astound me.
“The A-level results this year have improved even further from 12 months ago.
“The top grades (A*-A) accounted for well over half of the results with 80 per cent of grades A*-B, and 92pc of grades A* to C, again an improvement upon last year.”
Over 90pc of WGS students also gained places at their first-choice universities, while others have moved into apprenticeships or employment.
Some of the standout successes include Ruth Logan, who achieved four A* grades to study architecture at Cambridge, and Tilly Kerman-Staley who earned three A* grades.
She will study biology at the University of Bath, while Silvi Rathod, who also achieved three A* grades, will study economics at King’s College in London.
