Class of 2016 at Queen’s Park High School are celebrating their fabulous A Level success.
High grades across subjects ranging from biology to psychology to Russian saw jubilant scenes at the Handbridge school on Thursday morning (August 18).
An ‘overwhelming’ number of students managed to get into their first choice university.
The school said it is the latest milestone on a ‘relentless journey’ to become an ‘outstanding’ school in the eyes of OFSTED.
Headteacher Lyndsay Watterson said: “I feel very proud to see so many of our Year 13 students exceed their potential today and be able to progress to a new chapter in their lives, whether this be at university, on an apprenticeship or in the work place.

“It has been a privilege to be part of their educational journeys to date and see them flourish as talented individuals who I know will go on to seize every opportunity ahead of them.
“Finally, I would just like to thank them for all the outstanding contributions they have made to Queen’s Park High School over the years.
“We will certainly miss them but we wish them every success in the future.”
'Excellent role models'
High-achieving students include Danielle Buckley who achieved an A* and three As in English language, English literature, history and psychology. Danielle has earned a place at the University of York to study history.
Dan Farrow, Jake Gould, Lucy Stenhouse and Harry Williams also found A*s in their all-important envelopes.
Director of Sixth Form Clare Scanlon added: “I am very proud of how hard the students have worked to realise their ambitions.
“Not only have they achieved academic success, but students in this year group have been excellent role models to their peers through their student leadership roles.
“They have supported the drive to improve the school with their close work with staff and been pivotal in the number of charity projects.
“I wish each and every one of our students well as they move on to the next stage of their careers and look forward to hearing about their continued success.”
