Henry said: "The first thing I thought was wow, I'm going to Cambridge! It is going to be intense but really enjoyable. It's amazing!"
Christine Morris, associate assistant head, said: "It only takes a few moments with Henry Caushi and Kareem Omar to realise that they are extraordinary young men. In the year when fewer top grades have been awarded than at any time in the last 12 years, Henry and Kareem have 8 A* and A grades between them! A bright future awaits them both."
Head Nicola Hyde-Boughey said: "What an incredible achievement by both boys! We are extremely proud of all our students, and are delighted that so many have won places at top universities and medical schools."
A message on the school website read: "Congratulations to all our year 13 pupils for achieving fantastic A-Level and BTEC results this week."
