TEENAGERS were jumping for joy in High Wycombe today as they tore open their envelopes to reveal another successful year of GCSEs.
Boys at the Royal Grammar School could not conceal their happiness as they received their results, with more than 98 per cent of the 199 students receiving five grades at A* to C.
RGS headteacher Roy Page said: “It is a very pleasing set of results and I would say it reflects very much on the effort of all our students, staff and of course the parents.
“At a time of uncertainty regarding exam marking I think this has been another excellent set of results.”
RGS also recorded 69.5 per cent of students receiving only A*s and A grades.
One of the schools stand out performers was Max Shaw who achieved 9 A* grades.
He said: “I had a lot of support from everyone at the school, they always try and push you to do as well as you can.”
Another student who was celebrating at the school was Joe Mannion who was very happy with his six A*s, 4As and B grades.
He opened his results alongside his parents who both praised him and the school for their hard work during the GCSE studies.
Joe said: “I am absolutely over the moon, overjoyed. I was expecting to get a few A*s but not as many as I did, I am really pleased.”
His father, Des Mannion, said: “He got excellent results. We are so happy and proud of him, we are relieved as well that all of his hard work has paid off.
“The school have been great for him and we are so happy that they have helped him get to this stage.”
Fellow student Ed Ashton was also pleased with his results, which included 8A*s and 4As.
He said: “I was hoping to get something like this, but I was not at one point certain I had done it.”
Another student who was praised for his amazing German results was Sam Kaner who achieved 11 A* grades including a mark of 100 per cent in German.
