Exceptional A Level results saw Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College in Northwich build on its proud tradition.
Strong performances in STEM subjects including geography and maths also saw the college rank significantly above the national average.
A total of 86 students scooped all A*s or As and 14 of those achieved straight A*s. There was an overall pass rate of 99%.
