Shebbear College celebrated a 100 per cent A-level pass rate on Thursday.
The college said the ‘vast majority’ of pupils had secured places at their first choice of university.
In total, 49.5 per cent of all A-level grades were an A or A*, and 77 per cent were A* to B.
Among the top performers was deputy head girl Elizabeth Flaherty from Holsworthy, who will go on to study theology and religion at University of Oxford’s Mansfield College after getting four A* grades in English, chemistry, maths and physics.
She said: “It’s been kind of stressful because you don’t really know what’s going to happen, with everything going on.

Across the board, Shebbear students will go on to pursue a wide range of subjects at degree level, including aeronautical engineering, economics, business studies, as well as music and drama.
