HUDDERSFIELD Grammar School pupils celebrated an outstanding year of achievements at their ninth annual prize evening held at the Town Hall.
Former West Yorkshire Police Chief Constable Keith Hellawell presented the certificates and awards.
Joint headteacher Mrs Joyce Jackson said: "We are delighted that 96% of our pupils were successful in achieving the higher grades of A* to C, some gaining as many as eight or nine A* or A grades.
"Each year group is different and we pride ourselves on the range of talents exhibited by our young people."
In her review of the last academic year, Mrs Jackson said that although the school was the smallest senior school in the area, it participated in many activities including an outward bound weekend in the Lake District, sporting fixtures and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
Charity fundraising events included one by year 11 pupils who raised cash for their annual prom and donated £450 to Martin House children's hospice in Boston Spa.
Many other charities received donations and a total of more than £3,700 was raised.
