Our four top performing GCSE students had cause to celebrate after clinching an impressive total of 32A* and 23 A grades between them!

Antonia Qualey, Tristan Macro, Abby Wells and Ryan Feakin were left stunned by their string of A grades and all are coming back to study in the Sixth Form.

Antonia Qualey who achieved 12 A* and 3 A grades said: 'I didn't think I could come out with these results, it's amazing. I'm pleased with history, I thought I would do a lot worse and I got an A*. I love English but I found the test really hard. I put in a lot of work revising. I'll come back to do biology, chemistry, English literature and maths but I didn't realise that I would get good grades in everything. I don't know what I want to do, but I'll just work hard, it will take a day at least to sink in!'

Abby Wells earned four A* and 11 A grades after putting in some serious revision: ' I feel really good; I didn't think I'd get any A*s. My success is down to my mum making me revise really hard with no social life. I started my revision about three months earlier before everyone else. I'm going to study biology, chemistry, maths and psychology at A Level and want to go into medicine to be a doctor or surgeon.'

Tristan Macro was awarded 10 A* and three A grades: He said: 'I worked non-stop in the holiday weeks when we revised and again when we left school. I'm coming back to do maths, chemistry, Spanish and one other subject at A Level. I'll celebrate by going out for a meal with my family.'

Ryan Feakin was celebrating his ten A* and three A grades. He said: 'It's an absolute relief, these are the only results I would have been pleased with. I was nervous and worried that I would have some disappointment. I fast-tracked maths and science so there were fewer exams and more time for revision on the other subjects. The hardest exam was PE, it was a lot harder than I thought so that's one result that I am surprised and pleased about. I'm coming back to do economics, physics, maths and further maths. Miss Stringer said I should be chuffed to bits!'
