Results at A level this year were very good, with the proportion of A* and B grades up to 55%, the best for three years. A*-E grades (i.e. all passes) stood at 98%.
At GCSE, provisional figures suggest the overall 5 A*-C score is up 1% to 86%, continuing our year-on-year rise, with the figure including English and Maths remaining at a very good 66%.
There were many happy faces on the two exam results days as the pictures below show.
