Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School students in Blackburn secured a 100 per cent pass rate in A-Level exams.

Overall, 35% of the A level subjects taken by QEGS students were awarded the top two grades, A* or A.

Headmaster Simon Corns said: “With a significantly higher number of students taking A levels at QEGS this year, the improvement in the top grades achieved, from 25% to 35% this year, is very gratifying indeed.

"I have no doubt that their achievements have been assisted greatly by the excellent pastoral care which underpins our teaching and which was highlighted in this year’s ISI inspection report.

“Nearly one in five of our students achieved straight A* or A grades in all their subjects."

Among the high achievers Lutfi Al-Nufoury, head of school last year, achieved the grades to study Medicine at Lincoln College, Oxford.

Mohammed-Ali Quraishi, who joined the school as the first recipient of the Liquid Plastics Scholarship, now known as the Stonehouse Orion Scholarship secured straight As.

Amanda Cave and Anna Mulcahy, both achieved all their subjects at the top two grades and secured their first-choice university place.

Lyndsey Wilkinson, the first winner of the Blakey Languages Scholarship, secured the grades to stusy Modern Languages and European Studies at Bath University.
