A “bumper crop” of A-level results at Campion School saw almost all of its pupils get their first choice university place - with two teens set for Cambridge University.

The Bugbrooke school has reported a 98 per cent pass rate, with 70 per cent of its sixth formers achieving A* to C grades.

Of those receiving their results yesterday, Charlotte Jones and Georgina Laye celebrated gaining places at Cambridge University to read engineering and modern and medieval languages respectively.

Head teacher, Claire Whitmore, described this year’s results as a “bumper crop,” adding: “For each of our students, this wonderful academic success is only part of the full picture for a very talented year group who have excelled in many extra-curricular areas and in doing so have enriched school life - without doubt they will go on to make a positive impact in each of their next step destinations.

“We are immensely proud of all our students, wish all of our A2 students well in their new endeavours and very much look forward to hearing of their future success.”

The school has also reported “positive” AS-level results, with the pass rate increasing for the second year running.
