A SURPRISED Herschel Grammar School student is celebrating sweeping the board with four of the highest grades possible in his A-level exams.
Caspar Hammond, from Cippenham, was at the Northampton Road school on Thursday morning to discover he had achieved four A* grades in maths, biology, chemistry and ICT.
The 18-year-old was accepted into Cambridge, his first choice university, to study veterinary medicine.
Mr Hammond said: "I was surprised because I didn't expect to do as well. I'm really happy with my results and looking forward to starting university now."
Another Herschel Grammar student celebrating exceptional results was Randeep Heer, also 18, who had A* grades in biology and geography and A grades in maths and chemistry, and will go on to study medicine at Kings College London.
Of the 132 A-Level students at the school, 99.7% achieved A*-E grades, with 67% receiving A*-B grades.
Headteacher, Jo Rockall, said: 'We are very pleased to be celebrating another year of fantastic A Level and AS results."
