Last updated at 08:51, Friday, 16 August 2013
Cumbria’s A-Level results are on course for another year of good performances, early indications have revealed.
Sixth Form pupils at St Bees School are celebrating having achieved the best set of A-Level results on record. The 31 young men and women have obtained an outstanding 100% pass rate with 43% of all the examinations resulting in the top A* and A grades and 95% A* - C grades.
Headmaster James Davies said: “These outstanding results are a great tribute to the hard work and dedication of our pupils and their teachers and families who have supported them during their time at St Bees School.
“Our pupils have kept their heads and done what was needed to give them the best chance of getting in to the universities and courses of their choice, whilst also contributing to so many other areas of School life on the sports field, stage, concert hall, out in the fells and charity projects both locally and internationally.”
There have also been a number of notable successes:
Kirkby Stephen Grammar School report a 100 per cent pass rate at A* to E grades.
There has been notable individual success reported by Nelson Thomlinson School where 10 students gained at least four A* or A grades and two further students five A* to A grades.
Keswick School is celebrating its best ever A-Level results, with 37 per cent of all grades at A* to A and 14 students achieving at least four A* or A grades.
At The Queen Katherine School students have also achieved significant success with 20 students attaining three A grades or more, eight of whom achieved four or more A* or A grades.
