LONGSANDS College in St Neots saw its proportion of A to C grades increase from 71.8 per cent to 76.3 per cent, but its overall pass rate drop from 98.1 per to 96.1 per.
Twenty nine out of 34 subjects studied at the college achieved 100 per cent pass rates.
Headteacher Robert Whatmough said he was delighted with the results.
"This year group has built on its great success at GCSE level two years ago. We are delighted that so many students have secured outstanding grades.
"No matter what their ability, students have to work very hard to fulfil their potential at A-level. As well as congratulating the students themselves, I should like to thank their teachers and parents. Mutual support helps see the students through the most demanding periods."
Top of the class was Dominic Lague who, as well as achieving As in maths and physics and a B in history, was also the first student to have sat an AEA (advanced A-level) at the school.
