Amaka Dominic-Udeagbaja found today she had achieved three A* grades at A level, making her the first student in the school’s history to go to Cambridge.
She will be going to Corpus Christi College to study Psychological and Behavioural Science.
Overall, 47 per cent of students gained at least one A Level grade at A*-A, and 88 per cent of all A Level grades were A*-B.
Headteacher Eamon Connolly commented “I am delighted for each and every one of our students for these excellent results; both those who have been with us since the age of eleven and those who joined our Sixth Form.
“I am proud of the achievements and feel confident we have prepared them, both academically and personally, to enter adulthood and embark on their chosen degrees as fine young men and women.’”
The school, which had a glowing Ofsted inspection and ‘outstanding’ rating, credits its success to the high standards set by staff, describing the school’s culture as being one of ‘high expectations, rigorous support and ‘no excuses’.”
