“The changes to A-levels in the past few years has been a real challenge for educators and I am proud that Claremont has shown what is possible with such a diverse group of young people.

“Our school culture is shaped by a determination to provide opportunities for all abilities and interests. Being able to prepare young people for maths degrees at Harvard as effectively as for fashion courses in London is something all of our staff are deeply proud of.”

Aaron Eckhoff, head of Claremont Sixth, said: “I am particular proud that our students have earned themselves opportunities to not only continue their studies here in the UK, but in many high profile universities all over the world, and in particular the US.

“These results come at a time of continuing growth at the Bodiam school. The new academic year will see the opening of the much-anticipated Octagon classroom development, as well as a new performing arts centre that includes a state-of-the-art dance studio.
