Sidmouth College students saw their hard work pay off as their A-level results capped off another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for the youngsters.
The school has built on the successes of 2015 and 2016 with another strong set of results.
Staff, parents and friends of the college shared in the celebrations as year 13 students arrived to collect their examination results and consider their next steps.
Their performance reflected the fantastic spirit, commitment and motivation of this year group, and the support of their families in ensuring they achieve their full potential.
Principal James Ingham-Hill said: “This is an outstanding set of results and is testament to the hard work and commitment that this fantastic cohort has put into their studies. They deserve their success.
