The Muswell Hill school announced that 42per cent of all grades attained were an A or above and that 20pc of its students gained a minimum of three Aa – reaffirming its position as one of the highest performing sixth forms in the country.

More than three quarters of all grades were a B or above and 93pc were at least a grade C.

Co-headteachers Jo Davey and Zoe Judge released a joint statement which reads: “The exceptional hard work and dedication of our students and staff has once again resulted in students achieving outstanding grades.

“This ensures that our Year 13 students are able to embark on a range of exciting, challenging and diverse opportunities across an array of disciplines and institutions.
