Several subjects saw everyone pass with a top grade - physics, French and further maths students all achieved an A grade, while chemistry students all gained A* and everyone studying hospitality or outdoor education gained a distinction or distinction *.
Headteacher Gill Jackson said: “Witnessing the pupils open their results envelopes was hugely emotional.
“Kingsley pupils always support one another and enjoy each another’s success. Today was no different. I am immensely proud of our pupils and their exceptional results today which enable them to secure places on their university degree level courses.

Headboy Nat Bodinetz received three A*s in maths, history and English and is off to study PPE at University College London, he said: “I am thrilled with my results. To be perfectly honest, it hasn’t really sunk in yet, and everything seems a little surreal.
“I’m going to miss Kingsley, the teachers, all my friends, and the comfortable vibe here at school, but heading to London is going to be fun, I’m really looking forward to it.”
His twin brother Gabe Bodinetz added: “I am really ecstatic with my results. It’s been a hard few months for our year group but I’m happy with how I’ve done, and I have the results I was expecting.
“My next step is to head to London to study Art at Central St Martins. It is going to be a big change from Devon life! Being at school today feels really positive; I am so glad everyone has done so well.
“As always, there is a true sense of community spirit at Kingsley, with the teachers supporting each of us as we open our results and are here to celebrate with us.”
