Ferndown Upper School headteacher Alex Wills has been celebrating his students’ successes.
He said: “We are expecting a 98% pass rate at A-level – no mean achievement for a comprehensive school in a year when pass rates nationally have dropped a little.
“60% of students have achieved the top grades of A*-C so we are all very proud of them. In Year 12 AS results were up this year by 5% over 2013.”
He added: “We run courses in our 6th form for students who have achieved a wide range of grades at GCSE, not only for those who are able to progress to A-level. A very notable success this year has been the students on the Level 2 BTEC course in Year 12 who have achieved many merits and distinctions between them.

- Becca Powis – A* A* A*

- Phoebe Graham – A A A
