College principal, Laurie Poulson, said: “This is another outstanding performance by local students and the area should be very proud of its young people.
“We are also proud of every one of our students who reaches their individual potential and progresses in their career.
“Every year we hear critics going on about A-levels getting easier, but the reality is that young people still have to work very hard to achieve this level of success and in a sixth form college like this, they are ably supported by dedicated specialist staff.”
