Not everyone will head to university just yet though. Elle Moore, 17, who scored three A*s, said she is taking a gap year to travel around Europe as it has been a stressful time and she needs a break.

Executive head teacher Alice Hudson said: "We were thrilled to find that just under 70 per cent of the grades achieved at Twyford were B and above.

"This has put our students in the best possible position to access opportunities in higher education and on high quality training programmes."
