CAMDEN sixth formers are celebrating this week after achieving some of the borough's best ever A-level results.

Students and teachers' hard work paid off with A to E grades achieved in 98 per cent of all the exams taken.

Pupils have beaten last year's tally by one per cent and are above the national average of 97 per cent.

More than half of all entries were A or B grades which is 2.5 per cent above the national average.

The proportion of A to C grades was 75.8 per cent compared to 73.4 per cent nationally, whilst the number of entries graded A was 25 per cent compared to the national figure of 25.4 per cent.

Schools boss Cllr Andrew Mennear said: "Congratulations to all our hard working students and staff whose dedication and commitment have been rewarded by these results.

"I am delighted that Camden students have pushed standards up yet again and it shows what potential we have in our sixth formers. Well done to everyone.
