24% of results were A or better at Budehaven
WITH a pass rate of 97 per cent, Budehaven Community School is delighted that 24 per cent of its A-level results are A* and A grades and 51 per cent are graded B or higher.
Head teacher David Barton said: "We are thrilled that nearly a quarter of our results are A*s and As, but equally pleasing is the fact that 74 per cent of all grades awarded are grade C and above.
"The vast majority of students moving on to university have achieved the grades necessary to attend their university of choice."
Head of sixth form, Matthew White, said: "It is always great to see the smiles on faces when they see their results and get confirmation of their places."
