Students at Magnus Church of England Academy, Newark, have secured a 100% pass rate in A* to C grades.

Head boy Stefan Astle achieved an A in maths and B's in psychology and sociology and will study electrical engineering at Lincoln University.

Chloe Maxted, the head girl, achieved a distinction star and double distinction in BTEC health and social care and will now go to Nottingham Trent University to study policing.

The principal, Anna Martin, said the results were further improvement on last year's.

"I am delighted that these results confirm the trend of improving year on year ," she said.

"We are encouraged by the trend and would like to thank staff and students for all the hard work they have put in. All students have been able to secure a place at university without going through clearance."

She said the results were the best ever for the academy with 75% of grades being A* to B and 100% of grades in the A*to C - a further improvement on last year where the school achieved 100% pass grades in the A* to E range.

There was also 100% pass rate in the Applied General results with students securing university places to study psychology and policing.

Senior leader post 16 at the Magnus Rebecca Sheard said all the students were going on to higher education or employment.

"We are very happy with the results and to see that all of our students have secured places for next term including university, full-time employment and travel or gap year opportunities," she said.

"For those attending university the majority were able to secure their first choice university choice and I wish all our students the very best as they embark on the next chapter of their lives."

Mr Chris Moodie, CEO of Southwell and Nottingham Multi-Academy Trust said the results demonstrate rapid improvements at the school.

"Magnus continues to go from strength to strength," he said. "These results are wonderful news for all students who took their A levels at Magnus this year.

"They now have a bright future ahead of them. Well done to Anna Martin and her team for making Magnus such a success story."
