BISHOP Heber High School announced that well over half of their students achieved A*-B grades in their chosen subjects.

Results were strong across the curriculum with more than 75% of chemistry, English language, English literature and maths students achieving top grades.

High achievers include: Ryan Stephens (4 A*, 2 A), Tom Young (3 A*, 2A), Emma Dimelow (4 A*, 1 A).

Head teacher David Curry said: "This has been a golden year for the school as we end our 50th anniversary year with an upper sixth form that has performed so well and continued the tradition of excellence at A-Level at Heber.

"The result that this year group have achieved is testimony to their dedication, commitment and hard work as well as the sterling work and support of the staff at school and families at home.

"On behalf of all my colleagues I wish every student all the best in their further studies or employment."

Other success stories include Terri Houston, Katie McEvoy, Arthur Morris and Oliver Post, who achieved straight A/A* in all their subjects. Head girl Jo Bilcliffe achieved five A- Levels, with four at A*/A and head boy Oliver Nesbitt achieved three A*/A grades.
