Staff and students at Sandhurst School celebrated as the school recorded a six per cent increase in A-level passes.
The school in Owlsmoor Road recorded a 98 per cent pass rate compared to 92 in 2011.
This means 37 of the 38 students who took the exams gained a pass.
Of the students, 32 per cent gained four grades between A* and B and 57 per cent gained A* to C grades.
Assistant headteacher Simon Bamford said all the students who had applied for university places have got into their first choices.
Kyran Edmunds achieved three As and a distinction, and will study sports science at Birmingham University.
Rebecca Cousins achieved two As and three Bs and Amy Alexander was delighted with her three Bs.
Mr Bamford said: “We are very proud of the achievement and attainment of our sixth form students.
“They should be delighted with the results they have achieved.
“We are keen to stress, however, that it is not only these high achieving students of whom we are proud – many of our students achieved and exceeded their personal targets and will be progressing to further or higher education.”
