Headteacher Phil Pierce said that he was immensely proud of the results.
He said: “Here is to another summer of great British sporting success that we can add our own team of high achievers.
“These results reflect the hard work and commitment of our students. Top grades are up and with such a wide entry, it is always gratifying to see success across so many subjects.”
He added: “Well done to all the students as well as to the staff who taught them and the families who supported along the way. We wish all our students every happiness on the next stage of their journey wherever it takes them.
“I hope these results will encourage even more students to stay on at Prestatyn High School and Rhyl Sixth Partnership next year.”
