Well done to all of our students who are celebrating their GCSE results. Here’s what a few of our top performers are planning to do next:

Lydia Pouncey is one of our two highest performing students. Both she and Lauren Coull achieved 9A*, Distinction and two As grades. Lydia said: ‘I worked really hard but I didn’t think I’d do as well as this. Mocks gave an idea of where I was so then I was able to work on what I knew I needed to improve on. My advice would be start working from the mocks but have a social life as well otherwise you will get bored of revision. I am doing maths, further maths, chemistry and biology at A Level and will probably do a degree in maths or the sciences.’

Bethan Lewis worked hard for her 8A*s, 3As and a Distinction. She said: ‘I am most pleased about the fact I got As in my English as I was worried after the exams, plus A* in all three sciences. I worked hard throughout the whole year and I didn’t leave anything until the last minute. I am going to Reading Festival so I think that is a pretty good celebration. I tried my hardest in all my exams. I am coming back to do A Level maths, biology, chemistry and either French or PE. I want to go to university in Bath to do something science based.’

James Walton achieved 8A*s, 2As and a B. He said: ‘I am pretty pleased and I revised a lot. The result I am most happy about is physics. I am going to do physics and chemistry at A Level plus a couple of others but I don’t know what I want to do eventually.'

Lillian Williams was celebrating her Distinction*, 5A* and 5A exam profile. She said: ‘I am most happy about my A* in physics because I thought I might have dropped to an A and I really wanted to get the top mark. I knew I was on track for these results. I started revising as soon as possible and I also have a good memory so once I revise it tends to stick, especially with the sciences. They are something I am passionate about so it is easy for me to remember and understand. I am coming back to do all three sciences and perhaps history and I want to go on to veterinary studies.’
