Students celebrated after receiving their A level results at Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate.

School Principal Steven Jandrell welcomed the results, and praised efforts of students and staff.

He said: “When people ask me how we achieve such excellent results from our students I say it is because we treat each of them as individuals and as such we help them discover what it is they are good at and how they can best excel.

“Our teachers work very closely with the pupils to support them in their subject choices, university applications and their career aspirations and it really feels like a team effort in the Collegiate,”

A school statement read: “The successes of the Harrogate students have helped Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate gain its best A-Level results to date.

“Repeating its 100 per cent overall pass rate for its Year 13 pupils, Queen Ethelburga’s College students gained an average university admissions (UCAS) points score of 495 – the equivalent to over 4 A grades at A-Level.

“The percentage of grades at A* and A was 80% and A* to B was 97%. 72% of A-Level students in the College achieved at least 3 A grades.”
