Principal Duncan Cooper said: “It’s an impressive achievement and shows just how hard our staff and students have worked. I am incredibly proud of them all.

“99 per cent of the students achieved the grades necessary to move up to their chosen sixth form college which was fantastic.”

Almost half of the Bassingbourn students have achieved three or more A and A* grades, with 73 per cent of students gaining five or more GCSES at A*-C grade and 66 per cent gaining five or more A*-Cs which include English and maths.

High achievers include Arthur Baigent, Daisy Bergin, Lois Daw, Charlotte Day, Isobel Holcroft, Melissa Jakes, Ellen Jenkins, Bronwen Laugharne and Emily Newberry who all achieved straight A and A* grades.

Lauren Gwyther, Alex Collett-Sinfield, Sofi Rendell and Bronwen Laugharne all showed exceptional progress during their time at the college.

These results come at the end of an extremely successful academic year which has seen the college listed in the top nine per cent of schools in England for pupil progress.
