KIMBOLTON achieved some of the county's best A-level results for the fourth year running, recording with an impressive overall pass rate of 99.9 per cent.
A grades accounted for more than 54 per cent of the total A-level results, while 76.1 per cent of grades were A-C.
Over a third of the year group or twenty seven students achieved all grade As.
Headteacher Jonathan Belbin said: "We have done remarkably well - better than we have ever done before. I do not know how we are going to top this next year. The pupils have worked incredibly hard. The combination of good teaching and pupils' commitment has once again led to an excellent set of results."
Top of the class was head boy Oliver Bridge who, as well as achieving A grades in economics, politics and maths, also achieved a score of 598 out of 600 in his economics paper, the highest pass rate ever achieved at the school. He is going to Oxford University to study philosophy and economics.
Head girl Elisabeth Ferland also achieved A grades in chemistry, maths and politics and is going to George Town University in America to study politics.
