Our top performing GCSE students are celebrating their fantastic results and are now planning what to study in the Sixth Form. Here’s more details about their results and future plans.
Poppy Aves secured the most A* and A grades at GCSE with 12 A* and 1 A grade. She said: ‘I am so stunned. The secret is just doing loads of work and stressing out completely! I haven’t slept properly all week. Miss Stringer looked at the results and said “You don’t need to be worried!” I want to study medicine and be a doctor so I am coming back to study biology, chemistry, maths and psychology.’
George Robinson achieved 11 A* grades but wasn't able to collect his results in person as he is currently studying maths at summer school in Oxford. Last week he was celebrating getting an A* graded maths A level. He is coming back to study in the Sixth Form at Brooke Weston.
Victor Ho gained 10 A* and 1 A grade. He is now planning to study all three sciences, maths and psychology at A Level and is hoping to eventually pursue a medical career.
Kiran Joshi was also awarded 10 A* and 1 A grade. He said: ‘I am really pleased and relieved because I put a lot of work in during these past two years and it is great to see that it has finally came to fruition. I am most pleased with my science results because I did those a year early and got A* for all three. I am going to study biology, chemistry and physics, maths and further maths in the Sixth Form.’
Charlotte Jackson secured 8 A* and 2 A grade GCSEs. She said: ‘It is nice because I was fretting so much last night! The worst part was when I was sat on the sofa in Miss Stringer’s office waiting for the results. I am going to study biology, chemistry, French and maths at A level as I would like to be a pathologist.’
Kapil Tyagi was awarded 8 A* and 3 A grades. He said: ‘I am most proud of my English as that is arguably my favourite subject and I got A*s for both English and English Literature. I am incredibly surprised about my history! I am going to study Philosophy, English Literature, History and Maths. Hopefully that will lead to a good university and who knows from there?'
Callum Ward is also celebrating his 8 A* and 3 A grades: ‘I am feeling quite good, it is very exciting. It is proof that hard work pays off. I plan to come back and do physics, chemistry, French and maths. I am most happy with the A in photography and I am proud of the sciences as I got an A in my AS level and that took a lot of work. I am thinking of doing physics or something science based at university.’
