The Arnewood School in New Milton is celebrating another successful year of A-level results – with every one of its students passing.

In addition to 100% securing A* to E grades, more than one in five students (21%) achieved A* to As across the board and more than half (52%) got A* to B.

Among the success stories were Samuel Gears and Tom Harris who both swept the board with three A*s each in Maths, Further Maths and Physics.

“These results are equally as strong as in recent years despite the A-level reforms, which have made it tougher to get the top grades.

“It is a testament to the hard work of staff and students.”
