Students at Colfe’s school in Horn Park Lane, Lee, achieved another year of excellent A level results, with 71.7% per cent achieving A* to B and 100 per cent receiving A* to E grades.

Headmaster Richard Russell said: "Our top pupils excelled themselves this year with 20% of the cohort gaining at least three A grades and securing their places at top universities ahead of the tuition fees increase next year.

“History was the top performing subject at Colfe's this year with 95% of candidates gaining a B grade or better. I am delighted for the staff and pupils who have worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results."
