Students at Lord Williams’s are celebrating this year, with 75% of students’ A-levels graded at A*-C, and a total of 46% of the grades at A*-B.

Many students did exceptionally well, with 22 achieving A* or A grades in three or more subjects.

Catherine Aitchinson, 18, was one of the top students, having obtained three A*s in chemistry, physics and maths.

The Haddenham teen will now go on to study natural sciences at Cambridge University.

“When I found out this morning online that I’d got into my chosen university, I was just so relieved,” she said.

“And when I opened up my results envelope, I was so happy and so excited! I was so surprised!”

But it was mixed emotions for one student who, despite having achieved incredible results, was unable to secure a position in the highly competitive field of medicine.

Sacha Rond-Alliston, 18, achieved four A grades in maths, biology, politics and PE, one A* in chemistry and an A grade in an extended project on vaccinations and medicine.

“I’m going to try and get a job and re-apply for a place next year – and possibly the year after as well. It’s a very competitive subject,” he said.

“Oxford University would of course be my preferred place to study, followed by Bristol or Nottingham.”

Catherine Aitchison and Matthew Hopgood now have places at Cambridge University, and Josephine Glover and Madeline Shott
