Jessica said: "I'm ecstatic. I was quite confident but I didn't think I would do this well."

Jessica's mother Linda said: "We always thought she would do well because of the amount of revision she put in. She has always been very dedicated."

Josh Saydraouten, who was awarded one A*, one A, six Bs and one D will be staying on at the college's sixth form to study A-level business, geography, physical education and biology.

He said: "I am really pleased with my results. A few of the exams were harder than the mocks but the hard work paid off."

Beth Fox achieved five Cs, five Bs and one A and will be studying A-level geography, English and religious education at the sixth form.

"I was expecting all Cs because I didn't have much confidence so I was quite surprised," she said.

Other high achievers include Louise Moore and Frankie Witney, who achieved one of the five highest marks in the whole country for religious education.
