The school equalled its record of 52 per cent of grades being the top two marks, while 80 per of pupils achieved five A* to B grades and 95 per cent achieved five A* to C grades.

Among the high achievers were Amy Rodgerson from North Shields, Oliver Tewari from Sunderland, Georgia Scurfield from South Shields, Morgan Shaw from Newcastle, Jieran Meng from Shiremoor, and Annie Henderson from Tynemouth, who all gained straight A* or A grades.

King’s headmaster Edward Wesson said: “Again, our pupils have proved that hard work and independence of thought pay dividends, and they have set themselves up for excellent A-levels.

“This has been a very busy year group and their contribution to the life of the school in sport, music, drama, DofE etc has been massive.

“It goes to show that busy pupils achieve great things. I am sure they will go on to great success in the sixth form at Kings Priory School.”
