Destinations for his classmates include top universities Warwick, Imperial and King's College London, while others have also secured apprenticeships.
Executive principal Richard Fitzgerald said: "I am delighted to see so many of our young people achieve so very well and we are all proud to see them go on to the bright futures they deserve.
"That they have done so is a tribute to their efforts, those of their excellent teachers and the tremendous support that the parents at our school always offer. We wish them all the greatest of success in their future studies."
