Forty two Saffron Walden County High students celebrated achieving at least three A or A* grades after opening their A-level results this morning (Thursday).
Eleven top performers will be taking up a place at either Oxford or Cambridge, while six more have been accepted to a range of medical schools.
Overall, the A*-C pass rate was exactly the same as last year – 92 per cent – as was the percentage whose grades were all at either A* or A (37).
The A*-E pass rate was once again 100 per cent.
Headteacher John Hartley said he was “delighted” with the results.
