AKS boasted a 100 per cent pass rate at A-Level with sixteen students leaving with a clean sweep of straight A* and A grades.

Headmaster Mike Walton applauded pupils and staff for the ‘tremendous’ performance, which will see many heading to chosen universities from Oxford and Durham to the United States.

He said: “I am very pleased with the success of our students across the board. We are particularly pleased with our value added data, which shows how much extra has been added at every ability level; in other words our pupils have achieved higher grades than national predictions indicate for those individuals, thanks to the high quality of teaching they have received.

“This is a tremendous performance and is indicative of our academic ambition for all at AKS.”

Head of sixth form, Phil Hayden added: “Behind these fantastic results are of course a range of individual successes. Katrina Kelly is heading to Magdalen College Oxford to study classics; having founded the Lytham Classical Association.

“This year’s most popular university destination is Durham, with Rory Humphries reading biological sciences, Mairead Lucas of Poulton reading mathematics, Anna Marsland reading combined honours with arts (French and economics) and Matthew Patterson reading geoscience; all achieving straight A and A* grades.

“Two students have gained scholarships to study in the United States: Molly Betmead of Lytham will be studying at Lamar University in Texas, and Lucy Whalley of Blackpool is going to American University in Washington DC. At least four students are going on to study medicine, while a number are pursuing degrees in geology and related fields.”
