Ribble Valley students once again reached for the stars and surpassed expectations in their A Levels receiving the results this morning.

There were celebrations aplenty at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form Centre with most students gaining the grades they needed for their chosen place at university or to follow the career path of their choice.

Mr Jonathan Powell, who is deputy headteacher of Clitheroe Royal Grammar School and head of the sixth form, said: "Once again we are delighted with the students' results which reflect the amount of hard work from all of them supported by the teachers and their families.

"The overwhelming majority of students have gained a place at their first choice of university or with the employer or apprenticeship provider of their choice."

There was double success at the sixth form for two sets of twins.

High fliers Caitlin and James Webb, both 18, from Wilpshire, gained four A* grades in their chosen subjects.

For Caitlin these were French, Spanish, politics and EPQ. She will now go on to study French and Spanish at Cambridge.

Her brother James was awarded 4 A* grades in German, Spanish, history and EPQ. He also secured a place at Cambridge studying German and Spanish.

A delighted James said: "It will be great going to the same university and good for our parents as they can visit us both at the same place. Although we're at different colleges at Cambridge it will be good to have a friendly face there."

Another set of twins, Milly and Eleanor McEvoy, both 18, from Clitheroe, were also celebrating after gaining the grades they needed.
