Students of the Year awards were presented to 13 gifted teenagers at the annual A Level awards ceremony.

Philip Taylor, head of Cronton Sixth Form said: “The results of 100% pass rate and 80% high grades were the best the college has ever known.

“A raft of A* students returned from universities such as Cambridge, York, Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and Nottingham, to collect their A level certificates. Prizes were awarded for many subjects.”
