Students at Brakenhale School will be packing their bags for university next month after they all secured their places.
The school in Rectory Road, Easthampstead, recorded a 100 per cent pass rate and headteacher Paul Salter confirmed all the pupils who applied for university have been accepted.
Of the 17 students who took A-levels, 23 per cent achieved grades A*-B and 53 per cent scored grades A*-C.
Deanna Mill, 19, is off to St Mary’s University in Twickenham to read history, and after her degree plans to return to the school as a history teacher.
She said: “I’ve been up all night. I was so nervous, but it’s all OK now.”
Jessica Rushforth, 18, will read film and theatre studies at Reading University after scoring a double A in dance and a B in film studies.
She said: “The dance course was modular, but there was a lot of revision involved too.
“I feel the hard work has paid off now, I’m really pleased.”
Mr Salter added: “As a school we are delighted that 100 per cent of our students achieved A* to E passes.
“We are also extremely pleased that all of the students wishing to go to university this year have secured places.
“The students and staff are to be congratulated on their hard work and well deserved success.”
