A Level results day in Honiton.

Honiton Community College has seen record results for this year’s A Levels with 96.5 per cent of entries gaining an A Level grade.

There were plenty of delighted faces as students arrived to collect their A Level and AS Level results.

Glenn Smith, the college’s principal, said: “I am delighted with our results. Yet again students have surpassed their targets.

“This year’s A Levels results have exceeded governor’s expectations and place us amongst the best comprehensive sixth forms in Devon.”
