The year group set records for high achievement. 62 boys – half the year group – achieved A* or A throughout all their exams and an unprecedented 27 students achieved 10 A* grades or more. Of these, the top performers were: Jonathan Baker, Andrew Ball, Joe Chalkley, Michael Hollins, Jonathan Inglis, Christopher Milsted, Sanesh Mistry, Philip Ruis, Christopher Schon and Alex Shavick, all of whom had nothing lower than A* in their 11 GCSEs, whilst the highest scorers of all were Arran Bhatiani, Harry Hopla and George Tasker, who each achieved 12 A* grades.
