STUDENTS at St Chad’s Catholic and CE School have discovered their A-level results.
The pupils were told their grades from 9am this morning.
A school spokeswoman said sixth formers are celebrating an excellent set of results, but admitted that current higher education application rules may hamper some students’ hopes of gaining university places.
School highlights included a 100% pass rate in 19 subjects, with 12 of those scoring only A or B grades.
There were some outstanding individual performances.
Michael Laughton will study philosophy at Durham University after he achieved As in Maths, theology and English language and literature.
Erin Story received A grades in geography and psychology and B in Spanish and English literature.
Elisha Storrow passed four exams with an A in Sociology. Hannah McGrath earned an A in health and social care and three C grades.
Antonia Howard-Hildige was awarded an A, a B and two C grades.
Victoria Sallam scored an A in French.
Andrew Keeley, headteacher, said: “I am very proud of all of the students because the results prove that with our excellent teaching we can achieve the highest grades.”
He added that massive investment paves the way for future achievement.
He said: “I am pleased that sixth form should continue to grow and achieve even more because the school has used £10 million to improve facilities, particularly in post-16 education.
“Facilities for sixth formers like the new learning zone and library are superb and we are increasingly welcoming students from all schools across Runcorn.
“Any student wanting to enrol for September should contact the school for further information.”
