Luke Grenfell-Shaw, of Stoke Bishop, achieved four A*s (biology, chemistry, maths and Russian) as well as an A* in an extended project on the topic of curing the perfect ham.
A keen triathlete, Luke will be spending a gap year travelling in Nigeria, the Middle East and Russia before applying to study natural sciences at university next year.
Commenting on his unusual choice of EPQ topic, he said: "I looked at some of the more typical subjects that others were studying and decided I wanted to do something more offbeat. I'm a real foodie so this topic tied in with my passion too."
Jamie Allcock, who lives in Pill, achieved two A*s and two As and has won a coveted scholarship to the newly established New College of the Humanities in London where he will study philosophy, politics and history.
Some 86 per cent of grades at the school were marked A*-B, consolidating a consistent 85 per cent average for the top three grades over the last four years.
More than 50 students achieved a total of three or more As or A*s, including nine individuals who achieved three or more A*s.
The school's head master Roderick MacKinnon said: "It goes without saying that these are remarkable results which testify to the hard work put in by students and staff over the past two years.
"However, what has impressed me most this year is that our students have excelled across the board in a range of subjects which reflect their passions and talents, from traditional academic disciplines such as maths and science to more creative or vocational subjects."
