AT St Peter's School in Huntingdon, the A-level pass rate was down slightly to 82 per cent (from 91 per cent in 2006) but new headteacher Val Ford said many pupils had achieved the grades they needed.
"Being a small year group, one failed subject can significantly skew the figures, but the majority of our students have done extremely well," she said.
"Our AS level results have also been very good which is extremely encouraging for next year."
The pass rate at A-C was 31 per cent.
