Central Foundation Boys’ School has got almost perfect A-level results, with 99 per cent of students passing their exams. 44pc got A* or A.
This success was also maintained across the school’s vocational subjects. 100pc of grades were at Merit or above, equivalent to a C or above at A-level with 90pc of all grades at Distinction or Distinction*, equivalent to an A or A* at A-level.
The results are a slight drop on last year for the school in Cowper Street, where 100pc of students passed.
These results have secured these students exceptional university destinations, employment or apprenticeship opportunities. Some of their courses and destinations include business management at Surrey University and information management at University College. Other students are taking up apprenticeship opportunities, such as at Jaguar Cars.
The school is boys-only until the sixth form, where they admit girls.
