Some 1,023 students gained A Level passes in three or more subjects, with 23 students gaining A*/A in 4 or more subjects, and 180 gaining A*/A in 3 subjects.

Nationally, grades have improved for the first time in six years.

A* - 8.3%, up from 8.1% in 2016, their highest level on record.
A* and A - 26.3%, up from 25.8% in 2016, highest rate since 26.3% in
2013 after a couple of years of downward trending results.
