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."

Outstanding performances came from students such as Michael Hill, who achieved five A grades at A-Level and one A at AS-Level, and James Day, who recorded four A grades at A-Level, one at AS Level, and a distinction in the advanced extension award in English.

Assistant head teacher at Meridian, David Atkins, said: "I am thrilled that so many students have achieved so highly. These A-level results are the best ever at Meridian. It is especially pleasing that the overall pass rate has remained as high as last year, whilst we have seen a dramatic rise in the number and percentage of top grades.

"With more than ever applying to University, a very high number of students will now be continuing education which has been so fruitful in their time at school in Royston. Great credit must go to the students, their parents and all who have taught them over the past 14 years," he said.
