They were jumping for joy at Queen’s Park High School as sixth form students had plenty to celebrate on A Level results day.

A perfect 100% pass rate was achieved almost across the board at the Handbridge school.

Overall results show almost 40% of all grades were A* to B and 21% were A* to A.

The school puts its continued strong track record down to ‘hard work, excellent teaching and support from parents’.

Headteacher Lyndsay Watterson said: “It is always a delight to see our students being rewarded for the hard work and determination they have put in and to be able to support them to achieve their future aspirations.

“Our students’ achievements are a credit to themselves, as well as a reflection of the high quality teaching, learning and pastoral support the school provides.”

“The enthusiasm, commitment and hard work of the students have been rewarded with some fantastic results.
