Coun Arthur Barker, executive member for schools, said: "I was pleased with the results for North Yorkshire yet again.

"It's a measure of the hard work of the staff and the pupils at our schools. The Harrogate schools in particular normally perform at a high level and this year is no exception.

"We are fortunate in North Yorkshire to have such attentive staff with our students. The county council is now aiming to have all our schools rated as good or outstanding.

"Currently, 87 per cent of our pupils are at good or outstanding schools and we will work with schools just below that to push them into this boundary.

"The results in the Harrogate district are very pleasing and our focus is to have all schools performing like this and we will work with them to help achieve this."

Ripon Grammar School also performed well for Key Stage 5 results with all their students attaining at least three A levels at A*-E and 37 per cent getting AAB or higher.

Ashville College also made it into the top 10 in North Yorkshire with 92 per cent of their students achieving at least three A level at A*-E and 30 per cent getting AAB or higher.
