Abbey College, Ramsey is celebrating after a significant improvement in A-level results.
The college’s A*-A grades rose from 28 per cent last year to 51 per cent this year and it’s A*-C grade improved from 64 per cent 89 per cent.
All students completing their A-levels also managed to receive A*-E grades and one of the college’s pupils has gained a prestigious place at Oxford University.
The success is due to a change in ethos and attitudes of staff and pupils according to headteacher Andy Christoforou.
He said: “I am majorly chuffed that we have doubled our results from last year because we have been putting in the effort with members of staff helping students more than ever to get their grades.”
