Jack Peace achieved A* A A and will be studying Business Management at University of Surrey.

Georgia Stevens got A* A A and is going to be studying Astrophysics at Lancaster University.

Other top students are Natalie Hughes (A* A* C, Social Science, University of Bath), Thomas Collard (A* A B, Zoo Management, Nottingham), Evie Croxford (A A A, Psychology, University of Sheffield).

Others celebrating were Yanika Johnson: (A A A D*, Medicine, University of Southampton), Adam Millward (A A A, Psychology, University of York), Tyler Paul (A A D*, Higher Apprenticeship, Hydrographic Office, Taunton) and Nathan Clarke (A D*, Geography, Loughborough University).

Denise Hurr, Headteacher, told "We are very proud of the achievements of our students who have all worked incredibly hard with the support of our staff."

"Their hard work has paid off with fantastic university and employment destinations for our students."

"We believe that our sixth form provides an excellent standard of education for the young people of Highbridge, Burnham-On-Sea and the surrounding areas."
