Students at St Paul’s Catholic College are off to some of the country’s top universities after achieving some fantastic A-level results.

Every student at the college in Jane Murray Way, Burgess Hill, gained passing grades, with 32 per cent achieving A* or A, 62 per cent receiving A*-B grades, and 86 per cent at A*-C.

Hilary Morfitt, director of Key Stage 5 achievement at the college, said: “These results are a testament to all the students and their dedicated teachers.

“We are really thrilled for them all.”

Headteacher Rob Carter added: “We are all very proud of the students and all they have achieved this year.

“It is great to see them flourish as they move on to the next chapter.

“This success is down to the hard work, commitment and focus over the last two years of students and the staff who have inspired them in the classroom day to day.”

One of the stand-out performances came from Ron Dou, who gained four A*s and will be studying natural sciences at Cambridge.
