An impressive year of results coupled with a record number of students gaining unconditional offers from their universities of choice, with others going on to apprenticeships or joining the world of work topped the timetable.

Added to that, 11 students achieved straight A*/A grades.

This included head girl, Elizabeth Drinkwater, who with three A* is moving on to read medicine at Edinburgh University.

Also celebrating success is Benjamin Webster who with three A* will embark on a degree in dental surgery at Liverpool; and making the triple with his three A* Jimmy Chen will be reading mathematics at Warwick University.

A high proportion of students got into their first choice of university with a 100 per cent success rate in applications for medicine, dentistry and all other competitive courses.

Alicia Weaver (A*A*A) will be reading medicine at Keele, Annabelle Li Kam Wa (A*AA) reading medicine at King’s College London, John Sanderson (AAA) reading chemistry at York, Alyx Cope (A*AA) reading law at York and Alec Newman (A*AA) reading engineering at Lancaster.

Twin brothers and international biathletes, Samuel and Thomas Matthews, regular Fylde Sharks volunteers, both got three A* and are going on to study dentistry at Manchester and mathematics at Warwick respectively.

Samuel said: “I am blown away with my results and so thankful to the AKS teachers who have helped me to achieve all that I have whilst at school: the highlight being our visit to Buckingham Palace last year as national runners-up in the Tycoon in Schools business enterprise competition”.

Ishwar Malhi who joined AKS Sixth Form to further his ambitions in medicine got three A*.

He will now study medicine at Manchester.

Delighted Ishwar said: “AKS has been a great place to study A-levels.

“I’m delighted to have done so well and would like to thank my teachers for inspiring me and pushing me to do better than I ever thought I could.”
