Staff and students at Reigate's Dunottar School have greeted A Level results which saw pupils pass their exams with flying colours.
The school recorded a 100% pass rate with almost two thirds of all grades at the top A* or A grades.
The results also meant all of the leaving Sixth Form students secured their first choice university places - an achievement Dunottar is celebrating for the second year running.
Among those students is 18-year-old Ellie MacIntyre, who will now take up a place at St Catherine’s College, Oxford.
Ellie, who achieved A grades in English, French and Spanish, said: “I’m so excited about the next step and moving up to Oxford.
“I will miss my friendship groups in the Sixth Form here and the strong support I’ve had from all of my teachers.
“I know I have benefited from the supportive atmosphere and will make the most of all that I have learnt as I go to uni.” Headmistress Mrs Nikki Matthews said: “Today is all about the bright future that lays ahead for our girls and I’m delighted to see them secure their places.”
She said: “This year has seen a wonderful set of results across the board, with notable strengths in Chemistry and Physics, where we saw nothing less than an A grade.
“This is testament to the hard work and dedication of our teachers and the tenacity of the girls, who can be proud that they have earned each and every grade.”
