IN the first year since the amalgamation with Ailwyn School, the headteacher at Abbey College in Ramsey was celebrating a 97 per cent pass rate at A-level.

Wayne Birks told The Hunts Post: "I am very pleased indeed with our first set of A-level results. Staff and students have worked very hard in the first year of the new school and these results reflect their combined efforts."

The A-C A-level pass rate was 62 per cent.

One of the top performing students was the college's head boy Andrew Polley, 18, who achieved an A grade in drama and B grades in English and history. Andrew will go to Leeds University to study law.
