Thousands of teens across the borough opened their A Level results this morning.

Many schools said it was yet another record year with Bullers Wood in Chislehurst saying it was their best year to date as 67 per cent of grades awarded were As or Bs.

Meanwhile 15 per cent of all exams taken at Bromley High School in Blackbrook Lane, Bickley, scored the prestigious A* grade.

Head, Louise Simpson, said: “I am delighted with these results. With so much criticism of the exam system and the unfortunate mistakes in the papers this year we were concerned that the girls might be adversely affected. Luckily this has not been the case. Every single girl has worked incredibly hard to achieve her own personal success and we are delighted that they have been so ambitious in their university choices.

“This year we have a large group of very talented artists who are taking up foundation courses at Central St Martin’s and other high profile art, dance and drama courses, whilst at the other end of the curriculum spectrum we have budding dentists, vets and doctors who are looking forward to careers in science.”

Brooke Lyne, achieved 3 A* grades in English, History and Politics at Charles Darwin School in Jail Lane, Biggin Hill and has secured a place at Girton College, Cambridge.

He said: “I am very excited about the results and really looking forward to university. It has been really hard work and the teachers have really helped me a great deal.”

Deputy head Mick Boyden said: “The atmosphere in school today was wonderful with so many successes to celebrate for our A level students. This is a very positive time for our sixth form as it continues to be extremely successful at the same time as expanding in size.”
