One quarter of the year group left with 5 or more A* and A grades.
English, Spanish, German, music, PE, biology, chemistry, physics, computing and textiles all got well over 90 per cent A*-C and some 100 per cent.
Head teacher David Carter said: "The progress students make from their starting points have consistently placed SPH in the top 5 per cent in the country. This year is no exception and we are delighted that our headline figures are the best the school has ever experienced.
Behind the figures however are individuals for whom these results will make a life-changing difference.
It has been a privilege to work with such delightful students and we look forward to welcoming the vast majority and those from other schools into the Sixth Form."
