A Level students at Cedars Upper School in Leighton Buzzard did themselves and their school proud with a near 100% pass rate.
Headteacher Steve Palmer told the LBO: “We are really pleased with the A Level results obtained by the students, particularly as they come in a period of real change, for both students and teachers.
“The pass rate is again near to 100% at A2 and many students have again achieved top grades across the board.
“With Year 13 students we are making sure that all of them are able to move onto their next step in life, whether it be university, an apprenticeship or employment.
“Whatever their destination, we wish them all the very best after 5 fantastic years at the school. There were some excellent individual performances from the students and again, many of them achieved top grades.”
Adam Jest achieved 2 A* grades and 2 A grades
Alun Rowlands achieved 2 A* grades and 1 A grade
Ed Bond, Chris McVeigh, Mohammed Lester, Daniel White and Tom Bradbury all secured 2 A grades and an A* grade
Emma Borrill achieved 3 A grades.
“Many students will now be heading off to university for degree courses ranging from history to nursing, and from music to Japanese and Chinese to maths.
“For Year 12 students there were many incredible success stories when faced with totally new exams.
“The pass rate went up for the fourth year running, and the percentage obtaining the highest grades also increased again with some amazing individual performances, remembering that A* stars are only available for Year 13 students.”
