The school said excellent results in all the government benchmark figures were secured, and some of the highest possible grades were achieved by large numbers of students across the Cam Academy Trust.

More than a quarter - 27.5 per cent - of all grades returned with a grade 7 or higher, equivalent to an A or A* grade before the changes to the grading system came into effect.

The government benchmark Progress measure is also expected to be in line with the national average once again.

Almost two-thirds of students, 61 per cent, achieved grades 9-4 in both English and maths.

A set of twins secured almost identical results at the college, with both students walking away with 11 of the highest 9-8 grades each, including a further A* in additional maths.

Stephen Munday, chief executive of The Cam Academy Trust, said: "All our schools and their staff should be very proud of the results that have been achieved this year.

"While the results will be celebrated at each school, they are the product of collaboration between our schools, leaders and teaching staff over the past few years.

"Most importantly, it is pleasing to see that each school is helping our students to progress at or above the national average throughout the region."
