OTLEY'S secondary school is celebrating being ranked 'best in Leeds' for its A level results.

Prince Henry’s Grammar School has been told* it has topped the league table for A level results among state schools - with more than two A level students - across the city.

The school achieved, on average, a higher grade for each A level that students sat in 2016 than any of their competitors.

Headteacher Janet Sheriff said: “This is a fantastic achievement for our students and teachers.

"We already knew that the results were good, with nearly 30 per cent being A or A*, but to be ranked top of the league table in Leeds is amazing.

"We work hard with our Sixth Form students to help them achieve the best results they can and they very much deserve this accolade.

"It is not too late for new students to join us for September, 2017 as applications from both external and existing students are still welcome."

Thirty two per cent of Prince Henry’s students this year went to Russell Group - an association of 24 public research universities - universities, while 98 per cent achieved the university place, training or job of their choice.

*Headteachers have been told where their schools have been placed in the league table. The Department for Education is due to publish the full 16-18 and Secondary results in mid-January.
