Acting headmaster George Harrison said: “Shoreham College, as always, is delighted with its pupils’ results and this year is no exception.

“We are proud to be an ‘all abilities’ school, a characteristic of which is that our pupils only study traditional GCSE subjects.

“It gives me great pleasure to report that this year we gained a 100 per cent pass rate across all subjects. This is a first for Shoreham College.”

Of the 58 pupils who sat GCSE exams, 43 are leaving with at least five A* to C grades, with many A* and As.

Mr Harrison added: “Yet again, this has exceeded our predictions, by ten per cent.”

Of particular note are Roseanne Dean-Milward with five A*s, two As and two Bs; Maddison Clark with two A*s, six As and one B; Stefan Penman with two A*s, four As and three Bs; and James Lai-Morrice with two A*s, three As and four Bs.

Mr Harrison said: “These results are particularly impressive at a time when the media has warned there is likely to be ‘volatility’ in grades at school level this summer due to significant changes to the qualifications.

“I should like to offer my personal thanks to all pupils, parents and staff who have contributed to our success.”
