46 pupils achieved 7 or more A grades including 21 who achieved 5 or more A* grades. The top performance was that of Joseph Kelly who achieved 11 A* grades. He was closely followed by Ryan Griffin with 10 A* and 1 A. Andrew Jamieson, Jarrod Joshua, Bill Lansbury and Josh Somerville all had 9 A* and 2 A grades. The ten girls in this cohort overall marginally outperformed the boys and top performer Aneeka Shah gained 7 A* and 4 A grades.
