STUDENTS at Longdean School were celebrating as results showed standards had been maintained from last year.
Headteacher Rhodri Bryant said he was pleased with the performance but expressed concern about errors in exam papers that had thrown a question mark over results across the borough.
“We’re in line with the national average,” he said. “We’re maintaining a similar standard to last year.
“The issue as always is has it being a stepping stone for where they want to go. I have not met a student who has not got a place at the university where they want to go.”
Among the successes was Jake Wilson, who achieved three A stars and an A and will be going to Warwick University to do maths and physics.
Emma Jolly got two A stars and two As and will be studying geography at Loughborough University while Emily Dillon got an A star and two As and will be going to the University of Essex to study sport.
“I’m really happy and excited about going to university,” Emma said.
