PUPILS across Felixstowe are celebrating A level success after another record breaking year.
Early indications suggest the national trend for improvement in results is reflected in the results achieved by pupils at Orwell and Deben sixth form.
Computer problems at both schools have meant that they are unable to download the necessary certificates from the exam board but all individual students have received their results and certificates in the post and headmasters at both schools are pleased with the results so far.
Deben High School's headmaster Terry Ring said: "Initial results are very pleasing. Pupils seem to be getting what they should be and we have great results in virtually all subject areas. It is looking very promising."
