Students whose results made Sheringham the top performing high school in Norfolk, were honoured at the annual awards evening.
Guest of honour, Tim Roderick, who retired this year after being head for 10 years, presented some of the prizes.
He told his final GCSE year-group he said: 'Students at Sheringham bucked the turbulent results trend in 2014. Where results nationally dipped in many subjects, theirs rose and that is something very special.'
One hundred prizes were awarded. One group of 17 students gained 183 A* or A grades between them - an amazing statistic which raised a gasp from the audience and a rousing round of applause.
There was a a poignant moment as the audience remembered Year 11 student Martha Seaward who was fatally injured last January in a road accident.
