TEACHERS and students at Wolgarston High School were not only celebrating A Level results this morning, but the fact they are now one of the top schools in the county.

One student, Calum Grew, 18, who has secured a place at Nottingham University to study Maths said that he was happy to get the results he was expecting.

"I'm not happy I'm ecstatic with my results and that I am going to university," he said.

After gaining their outstanding title back in February the school was today celebrating their best A Level results in recent years.

Head of sixth form, Adam Simmonds, said that the school is now on its way to becoming one of the top schools in the county.

"Even with the harder A Levels we have done better than last year," he said.

Tom Clemmett, 18, who will also be going to Nottingham University to study a Masters in Maths, said he cannot wait to start in September.

"I don't believe it, it's one of the few times I am lost for words. I got better than I was expecting, as I was ill in my Physics exam and I still came out with a B in it, and I cannot thank the school enough," he said.

Headteacher, Phillip Tapp, said that the school felt really proud of all the students and that they have smashed the national average.

"The results this year are the best that we have ever had and even better than the results last year which were very high," he said.
