Students across Borehamwood have been celebrating their success as schools and colleges received record-breaking results.

Sixth form and college students have faced a nerve-wracking wait for their A-level results, which they sat during April and June.

But all three schools in the area said they are very pleased with the students, with some breaking records with the best results they’d ever had.

Hertswood Academy smashed a number of records, with the highest number of A* grades ever seen at the school and the highest ever AAB percentage.

Head teacher Peter Gillett said he was delighted with the results. He added: “We’ve had record best results at A-level this year, which is down to all the hard work and dedication of pupils, parents and staff.”

Elstree UTC received its first AS results this year, after it opened last September, with 25 per cent of all results being A and B.

Lauren Andrews, achieved three A’s and a B said she was ‘really pleased’ with her results. She said: “I thought I was going to fail everything. I was up until 3am this morning wprrying about it, so I was really surprised.”

She also received a mark of 100 per cent for a photography exam.

Headteacher Moira Green said: “These results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and staff- an amazing end to a whirlwind first year.

“Along with our fabulous results, a large number of our students are engaged in paid work experience as they have proved themselves invaluable to our industry partners.”

Yavneh College, in Hillside Avenue, will see two of its pupils go to Cambridge this September, as the school saw 63 per cent of pupils receive A* or A grades.

Star pupils included Sam Levy, Joshua Peters and Aron Carr, who all received three A*s each, and Daniel Greenblatt with 4A* grades.

Headteacher, Spencer Lewis said: “These are exceptional results, 63% of grades at either A* or A is the most incredible achievement and pupils, teachers and parents can be justifiably proud.

“A-levels are extremely difficult and these grades are a result of a lot of hard work and dedication and I am absolutely delighted.”
