The Latimer Arts College in Kettering, Northamptonshire, is celebrating sixth form success today (Thursday 14 August) after all of its students taking A Levels gained at least three A Level (or equivalent) qualifications.
Principal Siobhan Hearne said: “I’m delighted that, once again, this year’s A Level results are our best ever.
“Our students have performed extremely well, despite national uncertainty around changes to the examination process. Their hard work and the committed support of our staff has achieved the very best outcome.”
Among those celebrating was Ryan Leder, who opened his A Level results live on BBC Radio.

Ryan said: “I’m so proud to have got an A and two Bs. My Philosophy teacher was insistent I get an A all year and I’ve pulled it off! I’m now looking forward to going to Edge Hill University to study Drama and Creative Writing.”
Other student comments included:
“I got two As and a C, which is what I hoped I’d get,” said Kade Purbrick. “I’m going to Keele University in Staffordshire to study maths and music.”
Lee Marsh, who achieved an A*, two Bs and a C in his Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry A Levels, added: “I’m very excited. I’m off to Nottingham University to study Physics. This is a big step and now I’m going home to celebrate with my family.”
Sabeena Bains said: “I studied Psychology, Biology, Business and IT and I got two Bs, a C and a Distinction in IT. I’m going on to Loughborough University to study Psychology next. I’m shocked but it feels great.”
