ILFRACOMBE Academy says it has had the best pass rates ever this year.
With 99 per cent of pupils passing their A2 exams at C grade or above, deputy headteacher Tony Tucker said the results were a credit to extra efforts from both staff and students.
He said: "These results just reflect the ongoing drive of the school to raise standards in every way shape and form.
"That is reflected by the efforts of staff and the students and the determination to do whatever necessary to maximise their chances of success.
"We have done a lot of great work in terms of teaching but also a lot of effort has gone into focusing on students' journeys after their A level results."
There were a number of high flyers at the school including Jamie Crawford, 18, from Combe Martin.
He achieved 4 A*s in maths, biology, chemistry and art.
He said: "I knew I had one A* because I checked on Ucas this morning, but I thought I had bombed my maths exam. Obviously not.
"I thought I would be lucky to scrape one A*."
Jamie, who is now going on to study medicine at Birmingham University, said he was going for a meal with parents to celebrate.
Sam Pugsley, 18, from Ilfracombe was also one of the school's high achievers, gaining three A grades in chemistry, physics and mathematics.
"That is what I was hoping for," he said. "I'm probably going to go out tonight to celebrate."
Becky De Villy Atkinson, 19, from Ilfracombe, was celebrating achieving an A* in history, an A in English and a distinction in business studies.
She is now going on to study law at Cardiff University.
"My grades were a lot better than I was expecting. I'm going to go shopping to celebrate."
