MORE students achieved A* grades in their A-levels than ever before at Windsor Boys' School.
Interim headteacher, Tony Willis, said he was 'delighted' with the results of the 115 pupils who received grades, and picked out the school's progress in the International Baccalaureate (IB) for special praise.
Faizan Qureshi, was the highest achiever at the school in Maidenhead Road, earning A*s in maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.
The 18-year-old heads to Cambridge University to read engineering in September.
He said: "I needed two A*s so I was really surprised with the results. It was hard work but it has all paid off."
Ollie Foy, 18, received one A* in maths and As in English and biology. He will study law at Queen Mary's College, University London.
He said: "I am very pleased. I did lose my social life a little bit, but it was worth it."
Of the 322 exam entries, 96% passed and 70% achieved A* to C grades and 16.5% achieved A* and A grades.
Mr Willis said: "All the pupils have worked really hard to get these results and they have come alongside some extremely strong IB results too."
