ANOTHER record batch of results have been recorded by A-Level students at The Meridian School.
Nearly a quarter of results (24 per cent) at the school were A grades, compared to 19 per cent last year. The number of A-C grades was also up; 75 per cent compared to 63 per cent in 2008. The overall pass rate remained 96 per cent.
Michael Firth, head teacher at Meridian, said: "Last years 'best ever' A-level results have been surpassed by a huge margin.
"This year, a much larger cohort of students gained the top grades. Such talented students richly deserve their outstanding results and we are delighted for them. I'm sure their families, their friends and the wider community wish them well in their exciting futures."
