Alana was one - she achieved 9s - the top mark - across all of her subjects.

She said: “I feel very relieved and happy with what I’ve got. I don’t think I could have achieved these results at a different kind of school, there would have been too much pressure.”

King Alfred’s headteacher, Robert Lobatto, said: “This year group are very dedicated and talented students who richly deserve these results.

“The fact our teachers know every student so well meant they were very confident in determining the grades and had the exams taken place I am sure they would have done equally well.

“I congratulate all our GCSE students and can’t wait to see what they can achieve at A-level.”
