Congratulations to our students who are celebrating their GCSE exam success. Here are just a few of their stories:

Niamh Bailey got three A* and 12 A grades and is planning to study Design Technology, 3D art and possibly PE at A Level.

Blane Chalmers worked hard in the run-up to the exams and his efforts netted him five A*s, eight As and BTECs in music and ebusiness. He said: ‘I will come back and do English, Maths and Physics and I’d like to go into music production or some sort of journalism.’

Arran France got four A* and ten A grades. He said: ‘I am very surprised but I worked very hard at the last minute. I came in at seven or eight in the morning before the other students got here and was working up until the start of the exam. I haven’t got any plans for the future, I will just see how it goes and I would like to go to university.’

Marsha Green won a bet with her mum by attaining an A* in her Spanish exam. That, along with six other A* and six A grades means that she is on course to pursue her intended career in medicine. She now plans to take the three sciences at A Level, along with English and Spanish.

Nora Hollos achieved three A* and ten A grades. She is coming back to study biology, chemistry, maths and French at A Level and wants to study medicine eventually. She said: ‘I am really pleased with these results; they were a big surprise!’

Hemanth Jois has only been at Brooke Weston for just two years and he achieved five A* and ten A graded qualifications. He said: ‘I put my success down to a lot of revision. From about six months before the exams I revised from morning until night. Miss Stringer said I should really work hard for A Levels and I should aim to get into one of the Russell Group universities. I will do maths and science at A Level but haven’t got a clue what I want to do as a career.’

Priya Kakkad was celebrating her five A* and nine A graded GCSEs. She is planning to take all three sciences at A Level and business studies as she hopes to have a career as an optometrist.

Ciaran King did ‘massive amounts’ of coursework for DT and got an A-graded qualification. That, along with three other A grades and nine A*s means he is planning to study history, French, English and one other A Level in Sixth Form.

Tony Marinov is celebrating after getting seven A* and seven A graded GCSEs. He wants a career in economics or management and is hoping to study PPE at university. He said: ‘I had quite high expectations and worked hard so it had to pay off at some point.’

Leah Needham is on track to do ‘something artistic at university’ after gaining three A* and ten A graded GCSEs. She got an A* in art and plans to study art, history and English literature at A Level.
