THE best ever A-level pass rate has been recorded at Morpeth’s King Edward VI School.

Around 200 students sat the sixth form exams at the school this year.

And of the 637 exams taken, only three papers were given an unclassified grade.

The school also achieved its highest average points score for pupils and 57 percent of those who took the exams achieved all A* to B grades, matching the results last year.

Headteacher Simon Taylor said: “We are very pleased. It has been another excellent set of results and there are lots of happy faces. There are some really good grades.

“We have had our best ever pass rate, which is virtually 100 percent, and for grades A* to B it is on a par with the last couple of years at 57 percent, which is fantastic.

“Everybody has got at least two grades and the vast majority have three or four.

“We have 23 students who got all A* and A grades and three students got all A*s.”
