2006 A-Level results[edit]

In 2006 the school came in second place behind Truro High School in the league tables for the average A-level points score per student in Cornwall. This meant that Wadebridge school beat the independent and selective Truro School into third place, a feat that was achieved again in 2008.[1][2]
