“Their mentors, form tutors and teachers had every faith in them and we now say farewell as they carry on their journey in to adult life.
“We are also delighted that a record level of our students have decided to continue their studies at Russell Group universities following years of rigorous study here at All Saints.”
This year, AS and A Level grades have been assessed by teachers using mock exams, in-class tests, essays and coursework.
All Saints head of sixth form Steve Bonnar said: “We congratulate our sixth form of outstanding students who have worked for and now chosen their future life paths in so many different, fulfilling directions.”
A Level results came out on August 10 with GCSEs to be released on August 12 this year, earlier than usual to give students more time to appeal if they believe grades are not a fair reflection of their work.
