At Linton Village College (LVC) 95 per cent of students got five A* to C grades to set a new school record with a three per cent increase on last year, thought the number achieving that including English and maths fell slightly to 62 per cent.
Thirty three per cent of all grades were an A or A*, another school record up eight per cent on 2012.
The students they collected their results last Thursday (August 22).
Among the top performers were Linton twins Robert and Mark Mitchell, who achieved matching results with six and half A and A* grades and four Bs apiece.

Leon Coals, from Linton, notched five A*s and six As, and will now study English, history, chemistry and biology at Hills Road as he aims for medical school.
“I feel brilliant and was really surprised as I didn’t think I would do so well in maths and this makes it a good end to the summer holidays,” he said.
Lucy Baker scored ten and a half (the school does a short course in Religious Studies which counts as half a GCSE) A and A* GCSEs, and will head to Hills Road to study biology, geography, psychology and sociology.
“I feel fantastic and was really nervous coming in today so am really pleased that the hard work has paid off, especially after everything on the news about grades going down,” she commented.

LVC principal Caroline Derbyshire said: “These are the school’s best ever results and we couldn’t be more pleased as 95 per cent of our students have achieved five or more A*-C passes and 33 per cent of all grades were A*-A.
“The class of 2013 have been a credit to the school and to their parents.”
