60.5% achieved A*-B; 86% achieved A*-C; 98.8% achieved A*-E.
Headmaster James Harrison said: “In this unusual year, we’re very pleased with another set of excellent A Level results at Saint Felix. Grades awarded today were fair and accurate which is testament to the robustness of our internal tracking procedures in supplying credible and accurate evidence to the exam boards.
“It’s reassuring to see that the vast majority of our pupils have received the grades that they deserve, ensuring almost all of them a place at their first-choice universities. We commend the efforts of pupils and staff alike and are very proud of their achievements, especially in the challenging circumstances of this year.”

Today she learned that her A* and two As for Latin, History and Geography have secured her a place at St Andrews to study Classics.
