Students received their A level results at King James’s School in Knaresborough.
A total of 57 per cent of all A level grades awarded at the school this year were A*, A or B grades. This is an increase of five per cent on 2012.
King James’s School Headteacher, Carl Sugden said: “These results are set against a national trend of tougher exams and marking, so this shows just how hard these students, and the teachers, have worked to deliver these grades.
“We have many years of proven success at A level in this school but we are never complacent, A level results are so critical to university entry and we have a strong tradition of putting students onto some of the best graduate courses in the country.”
A school statement read: “A significant number of students achieved a clean sweep of grade A’s at A level including Sam Evans, Fiona Booth, Charlie Clissitt, Rosalind Corner, Beth Crabtree, Michael Foster, Emma Halstead, Catherine Houston, Nina Kingham, Daniel Whittaker, Charlotte Whiteley and Susanna Worth.
“Charlie Clissett and Susanna Worth have both been successful in gaining places at Cambridge, both to read English.”
Chair of Governors Dennis James said: “It is really important to the school not simply that the students do well in their exams, but that they get the grades they need to get into their first choice university places.
“The strong performance at grades A and B is particularly important for students to achieve their aspirations.
“The governors would like to congratulate the students on their success and also to the staff at the school who have worked hard to support them and to deliver another great set of A level results.”
