Wisbech Grammar School

High-achieving students at Wisbech Grammar School are heading for their chosen universities after securing a 100 per cent pass rate in their A Level examinations.

New headmaster Mr Chris Staley said:   "I am very, very pleased with the 100 per cent pass rate and the majority of students have got their first or second-choice universities."

He also paid tribute to the pupils who had secured the highest grades to secure places on competitive courses at leading universities.

He said:  "There are some outstanding results, with 13 per cent of the grades being at A* and 39 per cent at A* and A. Over two thirds of the passes were at the top three grades - A*, A and B - which would see the students into top-class universities for the courses they would wish to read."
