More than 91 per cent of students at Hinchingbrooke School had a pass rate of A* to C as they collected their A Level results today.
177 Year 13 students today received their A Level and BTEC results for Summer 2021.
At A level, the pass rate was 100 per cent and the average grade was a B. 15.5 per cent of all grades were A* and 39.1 per cent of grades were either A* or A.
The A*-C pass rate at A level was 91.4 per cent.
In the BTECs, the pass rate was also 100 per cent. 42.6 per cent of results were at Distinction Star - the highest result possible - with 74.5 per cent of results either a Distinction Star or a Distinction.
Mark Patterson, principal at Hinchingbrooke, said: “We are absolutely delighted with this year’s A level and BTEC results.
“After 18 months of hugely disrupted education, these results reflect our students’ determination and resilience, and their enormous diligence, not least because they had to sit very rigorous assessments that provided the evidence for their grades.
