Ten students from Ruthin School have earned places at Oxford and Cambridge – their highest number ever.
The students will study a range of courses, including Mathematics, Medicine, Economics, Music and Natural Sciences and Engineering.
Overall, thirty-four students achieved three or more A*/A grades out of a total of 66 students.
At AS Level, the results were similarly impressive with a high number of Lower Sixth students gaining top grades. 22 pupils achieved A grades in all subjects.
Principal Toby Belfield said: “I am delighted with this year’s results.
“Our students choose Ruthin School so that they can gain access to a top ranking university.
“Having over 15% of our cohort achieving entry to Oxbridge is a tremendous success.
“With the change to the A Level specifications this year, we were not sure what to expect.
“However, as a result of hardwork from both the students and the teaching staff we can celebrate yet another year of outstanding results.”
