Staff and students at Horsforth School were "exceptionally pleased" with their bumper crop of A-level results this year.

Head teacher Dr Keith Bothamley said: " All of our Year 13 students have left with at least two A-level qualifications. This, combined with a 100% pass-rate for the fifth consecutive year, has ensured that all of our students will progress successfully.

"Almost one third of all grades were awarded at A*/A and a ‘typical’ Horsforth student left our sixth form with the equivalent of three grade B’s at A-level. For the fourth consecutive year, over 60% of grades were awarded at A*-B.

"Our staff are rightly proud of the exceptional results gained this year and our thanks go not only to them for their professionalism, but to our governors, parents and carers who have been so supportive over many years."
