Head Richard Jacobs said: “Everyone at The Chase is very proud of the fact that not only did we secure the best A Level results in Worcestershire within the state sector but that we matched and even bettered those of our highly esteemed partners in the independent sector.
"It brings us great comfort to see so many of our sixth formers able to go on to even the highest ranked of Universities.
"They have continued a journey begun by the many excellent primary schools in the Malvern area and its as much their credit as ours.”
