The college, in Wingletye Lane, saw 64pc of students achieve A*-C, with 11PC managing A* or A grades.

Nearly all the college’s courses achieved pass rates above 90pc.

Many of its students now study predominantly vocational courses and results in that area were up once again with 61pc of full-time vocational students achieving a triple distinction and 87pc achieving at least one distinction.

Principal Paul Wakeling said: “Once again, I am delighted to announce excellent outcomes for our students in 2018.

“Our overall A Level pass rate, passes at A* and A, high grades A*-B and A-C are again higher than last year and this is part of a six-year improvement trend.

“We are very proud of this achievement for both our students and staff that will contribute towards our mission to be recognised regionally and nationally, as a centre of excellence for high quality education, social inclusion and outstanding progression for our students.”

The school is expecting around 700 of its students will once again be progressing to university and that around 10pc of those will be heading to a Russell Group university.
