Headteacher Pete Last, said, "I am hugely proud of the excellent results that have been obtained by so many of our pupils and I am also delighted for the teachers who helped to prepare the sixth form for their public exams.

"We have an excellent sixth form here at Kingsley and I would be delighted to meet any pupils who think that our sixth form might be the right environment for them for the next two years."

Sixth former Rufus May picked up two A*s and a B.

He said: "I cannot quite believe it, I have done so much better than I expected.

"I cannot thank my teachers enough for all their help outside the classroom."
