Ashville College Headmaster Mark Lauder said:
We are highly delighted with this year’s record breaking A-level results.
They reinforce our position as a school that is committed to excellence in academic performance, through fully resourcing the steps required for each individual pupil to achieve their best.
These outstanding results show this is clearly working for the benefit of all our pupils.
My congratulations go to all students, the fantastic results demonstrate the hard work they have put in over the last two years.
I’d also like to pay tribute to my colleagues on the teaching staff who have supported and inspired these Sixth Formers through their studies.
