Rossett School in Harrogate welcomed students as they picked up their A level results.
Almost every A level pupil passed all of their exams with an overall pass rate for the school reaching 99.2 per cent, of which 40 per cent were A*-B and 16 per cent were A* and A grades.
Headteacher Pat Hunter said: “A level results day is always very tense because we as teachers get the results the day before so we can have a look at them.
“I don’t sleep the night before.
“The students grow up with us and we know them really well so it is important to be there when they pick up their results.
“There’s a lot resting on what they get - there are only so many university places.”
She continued: “It is hard for the students but our results are very good, we are pleased.
“We couldn’t be more delighted for our pupils. They have all worked extremely hard and deserve their success.
“The results are also a reflection of our persistent focus on teaching and learning, the hard work and dedication of staff and students, and the incredible support of their families.”
Head girl Beatrice Hill achieved one A*, two As and a B, while head boy James Noble scored three As, and a B at AS level. Other top results included:
Polly Ash: AAAA, and A and B at AS; Sam Longbottom-Smith: A*AA, and A at AS; Leanne Godfrey: AAA, and A at AS; Andrew Hastings: A*AA, and B at AS; Ben Longbottom Smith: A*AB, and A at AS; Abi Marshall: AAB, and B at AS; Jacob Packter: AAB, and B at AS; Andy Thong: AAB, and C at AS.
