Headmaster John Green, who took up the post two years ago, said: “We are delighted to have maintained our number of A* grades achieved in last year’s exams, and the A*-C pass rate at close to 75 per cent continues to reinforce our proud academic record.

“Considering the undoubted increase in academic rigour from the examination boards the results this year are particularly pleasing.

John added: “at Seaford we look after our students and inspire personal ambition and success so that personal bests are achieved inside and outside the classroom. This is why I love Seaford - because our flight path is unique.”
