And 23 percent of all A Level grades achieved were at grades A*-A, a three percent rise on last year. Over half of all grades achieved were at A*-B grades.

Mr Karl Newell, Headteacher of Crompton House, said: “Over the past two years our A Level students have grown in confidence as they have progressed academically, socially and as leaders within the school.

“They can now look forward to a bright future at university and beyond.

“Their excellent results confirm our continued aim to improve year on year.

“Our students have worked really hard and the excellent commitment of the Crompton House students, staff and parents has been reflected in the grades.”

Outstanding results include Rachel Milligan who achieved A*s in Physics, Maths and Further Maths and will be going on to Durham University to study Maths.

Emma Guilbert achieved A*s in Psychology, Geography and English Literature and will be studying Psychology at Newcastle University.

Luke Cheetham achieved an A* in Maths and As in Further Maths and Physics and will be studying Mechanical Engineering at Leeds.

Stephen Oldfield achieved A’s in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and will be studying Dentistry at Cardiff University.

“I owe Luke a tenner,” laughed Rachel. “I told him I wouldn’t get three A plusses and he said I would.”

Outstanding results at AS Level included As in Biology, English Literature and History for Philippa Bateman.

Sadie Kay achieved As in Biology, Physics and Psychology.  Rebecca Wynne achieved A’s in Geography, Psychology and Sociology.

Mr. Newell added: “Our AS results are excellent and the students and staff have worked very hard to achieve them.

“They confirm that our students are well on course for excellent A Level results next year.”

A spokesperson for Oldham Education Partnership explained: “Changes to A levels have been underway since September 2016 and results in the majority of subjects are now for the new A Levels.

“While the government has been clear the ‘Gold Standard’ of A Levels has been maintained, they are now linear, which means that all exams are taken at the end of the course.

“Different subjects are being updated in different years, with the last set of reformed results to follow in August 2019.

“In the meantime, comparisons between old and new style A levels are difficult to make, coupled with the fact that different organisations have different models of delivery, with some having moved away from AS level options and others retaining this model.

“Caution must therefore be used when making comparisons, both with previous years and between subjects and organisations.”

Happy students celebrating their results with headteacher Mr Karl Newell
