Hayley Blamphin achieved 3A*s and will read chemistry at Oxford, Jackie Gray who got one A*, two As and a B will also attend Oxford to read languages, and Sam Dale, who got three As and an A, will pursue a medical degree at the University of Newcastle.

Jacob Grace will read biological sciences at Leeds University with his one A* and 2 As, Nicola Harrop who got one A* and four As will read economics and econometrics at the University of Bristol, Huw Kelly who got one A* and two As, will study aerospace engineering at the University of Manchester and Emma Farnworth will read English literature at either Durham or Exeter, after achieving one A*, two As and a B.

Other courses students will be pursuing at university this year include paramedic emergency care, computer science, business and fashion, biomedical science, television and radio, international relations, English literature and philosophy, politics and history.

Jason Lowe, director of sixth form, said: “We are delighted that, once again, the majority of students got into their first choice university. Today has been an absolute pleasure for us here at school.

“They have been an outstanding year group who have not only developed academically during their time here at Tarporley, but also personally, as individuals.

“Our students have contributed so much to the life of the school and to the local community, and are frequently praised for their mature approach, their teamwork and their leadership.

“Today is a fitting reward for all their hard work, supported by their families and the dedicated staff at the school. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success in their next pathway in life. We really will miss them all!”
