Special mention must go to Jonathan Wyllie, who achieved an amazing triple Distinction* qualification in Sport.
Chandler Russell is the highest achieving student attaining A*, A and B grades in Maths, Further Maths and Physics respectively and an A in his EPQ.
Chandler collected his results and there were a few tense moments while he logged into his UCAS account to confirm that he will be embarking on a maths degree at Southampton.
After receiving congratulations from Head of Maths, Jeff Bowes, Chandler rushed off to share the good news with his parents.
Business Studies student Laurna Haynes gained two Distinction grades at BTEC with a B and C grade at A level.
