And an impressive 117 students, nearly two-thirds of the year group, achieved three or more A*-A grades (or Pre U equivalent).

In art, biology, history, religious studies, music, further maths and physics, more than half the Perse students sitting A levels/Pre U achieved an A* or equivalent grade.
