A Level results up to the mark 14.08.14

Headmaster’s comment:  “These are excellent results which, against the national trend, maintain the Grammar School’s high standards of recent years in the subjects regarded as being the most difficult. The number of A* grades, 118, is the most the school has ever achieved and the boys secured 264 A*and  A grades in total. I am very pleased for the boys and their teachers who have worked hard for this success. The boys are heading for the very best universities in this country and abroad.”
