ABOUT 400 pupils, staff and parents attended the school's annual speech day.
Forty prizes were dished out at the award ceremony held at the school on Thursday evening.
James Rudge, of Belmont Road, Winscombe scooped the headmaster’s prize after achieving four A* grades at A-level.
The 18-year-old studied maths, French, history and economics and has now headed to the University of Warwick to read the latter.
The headmaster’s GCSE prize was shared between five after they all achieved 11A* and one A grade this summer.
Headteacher Barry Wratten praised all the pupils and said the school’s switch to become an academy was proving a successful one.
He said: “It’s 12 months since we became an academy and we have now achieved the best A-level results in the area.
“We aim to maintain our focus to ensure our students achieve the very best.”
