The Headmaster comments:

“These are very good results which, against the national trend, maintain the high standards of recent years.  The boys secured over 200 A*/A grades in total, the majority of these excellent results being achieved in subjects regarded as the most challenging at A level, notably Mathematics and the Sciences.   In History, 15 candidates gained an A* or A, representing 71.4% of the entry, a particularly impressive achievement for the Department.”
