Here is the final round-up of students celebrating this year’s exceptional GCSE results:

Pippa Hawkley was the first girl from Brooke Weston to achieve an A grade in engineering. She had a joint celebration with friend Jo Newton after the duo achieved 19A* or A graded qualifications between them.

Jo got 3A*s and 7As. She said: ‘I am going to make sure that I work just as hard for my A Levels as I want to do anything in the music industry. Physics and maths can help me be a sound engineer and English language can help me be to a lyricist. I am most proud of the music and maths GCSEs because I found the first year of maths really hard and I struggled with music so these results are a massive load off my mind!’

Pippa who achieved 4A*s and 5As, is planning to take maths, physics, chemistry and biology A Levels. She said: ‘I am probably most pleased with my A in engineering and after A Levels I want to do a degree in mechanical engineering at University College London.’

Lauren Smith is returning to Brooke Weston to study business, psychology, art and design and English language after gaining 7As and a Distinction in Art and design. She is not sure what career she wants and said: ‘My favourite result was probably psychology because I wasn’t expecting to get an A grade in it.’

Savanna Kirkpatrick got 2A* and 7A graded results. She said: ‘Media was the hardest subject and I had to work really hard for it. The secret was doing revision and I wasn’t expecting my results to be as good as this!’ She is now planning to study maths and media at A Level.

Chris Weaver is celebrating his 5A*s and 4As. He said: ‘I hope to do sciences, maths and art, perhaps leading to something to do with IT and 3D computer modelling as a career.’

Congratulations to all our students who did so well in their GCSE examinations this year.
