Students at the Aylesbury Grammar School are celebrating after they received their A Level Results this morning [Tuesday, August 10].

Many 18-year-olds visited the Walton Road venue to see what grades they achieved, which determined what universities they will attend this autumn.

All the students were in high spirits when opening their envelopes, which included Archie Rainbow.

The 18-year-old got three A*s in history, politics, and Spanish, as well as an A* in an extended project qualification.

He is now planning to study Spanish and Portuguese at Cambridge this autumn.

Archie told the BFP: “I am absolutely chuffed – I am so pleased.

“I got my hopes up when we weren’t doing exams because I didn’t do as well in my GCSEs, but I worked very hard over lockdown especially, as I used my time quite well and the teachers really helped as I worked better like that.

“It ended up working out quite well.

“I got exactly what I wanted.”

He also thanked his teachers in what has been a difficult time for students since last March.

He continued: “My teachers have been absolutely brilliant with what has gone on.

“They were always there else and I am very grateful.”

Another student who will making plans to travel to Cambridge is Ben Harding, as he achieved three A*s in English Literature, physics and maths, as well as getting an A in history.

He too thanked his teachers over the last year.

He said: “We got a lot of support, so it hasn’t felt we have been away from a school environment, so it hasn’t been too bad.

“A lot of the subjects we have involve independent studying so it’s quite facilitating.

“They’ve been great as they have got in touch over lockdown and they’ve always wanted the best for us.”

Mark Sturgeon, who is the headteacher at the Aylesbury Grammar School said: “We are really pleased for them.

“Their hard work after a disruptive two years, along with their dedication and resilience has given us a great set of outcomes that will give them a path into the next stage of their career.
