Brentwood School students studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma received their results last week, the day after term finished.
This marked the end of two years of exceptional hard work and commitment to realise their dreams of studying their chosen course at university.
Deputy head of school Tom Haward got 43 points (with 45 being the maximum possible) and will be heading to Imperial College London to study theoretical physics.
He said: "I'm very happy.
"I went quite far over my offer so I'm very pleased, particularly with maths as I got a 7.
"The teachers have really helped and have been there all the time for me, including today."
Boarding student Valeria Nulli, who was awarded the International Baccalaureate Prize this year, received 41 points and is delighted to be studying biology at the University of Warwick.
Deputy head of school Catriona Kadirkamanathan also got 41 points but couldn't come to the school to collect her results in person since she's away with the School Big Band in Barcelona.
The singer took a break in between performances to call in and say how excited she was to be heading off to the University of St Andrews to study Classics.
Abbie Greenhill achieved 40 points and is off to the University of Bristol to study Medicine, following crucial guidance from the School's Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary programme. She said: "I'm very, very happy! It's a nice end to a difficult but fulfilling journey."
The school's International Baccalaureate Diploma programme now has a five year average of 36 points.
Director of Sixth Form and IB, Rob Higgins said: "I'm thrilled with such a strong set of results and that so many students are in to their first choice university as usual.
"I'm also very proud that the IB Diploma Programme remains accessible for all students and year after year they continue to contribute to the school's commitment to academic excellence.
"I must finally pay tribute to our wonderfully committed IB teachers who always go the extra mile to ensure every student meets their potential."
