Ramsgate pupils rack up bumper crop of A levels
CHATHAM and Clarendon Grammar School Federation in Ramsgate celebrated another bumper year for A-level results with 99.8 per cent pass rate from 700 exam entries.
Nearly a quarter of those results were at A or A* grades and over half were a grade B or more.
This marks a big improvement for the school which last year had a pass rate of 98.6 per cent, with just 47 per cent getting a B grade or more.
Among the high achievers was Benedict Hawkins who received two A*s, two As, one B and one A at AS levels. He will go on to English at Queens College Cambridge.

Head of sixth form Mick Moody said: "I am delighted at the tremendous pass rate, one of the highest in recent years. It is testament to the hard work of students, staff and not forgetting the parents who supported the students in the background. I also very pleased for Ben, who managed to secure his place at Cambridge."
Kavisha Chapman, 18, from Broadstairs, got an A* in maths and A grades in economics and IT. He said: "Last year I got a U in economics but this year I got an A. I just goes to show that with enough determination you can come back from anything."
Kavisha will go to Sheffield University to study business and economics.
Dehesh Padiachey, 18, from Broadstairs received A* grades in economics, maths and physics and A grades in further maths and general studies. He will go to study economics at University College London. He said: "I am very, very happy. I can finally relax. I can look forward to celebrating with friends and family. I going have a dinner at Nandos and then I am going to chill out on the beach."
Mum Selvum Padiachey, also pictured, stood by her son as he opened his results. She said: "I am just so lost for words, I am very impressed by Dehesh's results and so very proud of him."
