STUDENTS at Kingsley School, Bideford, have been celebrating their A-level result success with one third of students receiving A* and A grades.
The overall pass rate for the school was 98 per cent and almost half received A*, A and B grades.
Retiring headmaster Andy Waters said: "We are all delighted with the success of the students, both collectively and individually; they have been a tremendous group of young people who have worked very hard over the past two years.
"I am especially pleased with the high proportion of students who have gained places at their first-choice universities and colleges, including some really prestigious institutions.
"These results are a great tribute to their efforts, and to the dedicated work of their teachers. They represent Kingsley's sixth form at its very best, and we wish all of them every success in the future."
One of the students, Chloe Marsden, is now going to study natural science at Cambridge having gained two A* and two A grades.
She said: "I am so happy, it has been a lot of hard work but it has been worth it now.
"I have just been on holiday to Greece so it has taken my mind off today."
Sophie Gregory, another student, is now off to Bath Spa University to study English Literature having got B,C,C.
She said: "I had psyched myself up not to get into my first choice so I was really happy this morning to find out I had."
