"The biggest measure of success, however, is that every student leaves the school full of character, opportunity and appreciates the value of our ethos of 'Love as Brethren' - after today, I feel we have certainly achieved that!"

Speaking directly to some of the St Mary's Lane school's highest achievers in her office on Thursday morning, headteacher Sue Hay said: "I am absolutely amazed at the hard work you have all put in and you should all be very proud of yourselves today.

"You have all contributed to our community in so many ways, and you have all coped with the pressure of these exams - having to sit so many in such a short space of time - remarkably well.

"You all truly embody the values of Love as Brethren [the school's motto].

"I am sure you are all going to go on to achieve amazing things - please do keep in touch."
