Students at Kettering Buccleuch Academy celebrated a successful set of GCSE results.

Academy principal James Bowkett said: “We are proud of our students, who have achieved some excellent results.

“These build on our impressive AS results last week.”

Zoe Mair, 16, from Kettering, was one of the school’s top performers, with five A*s, 4As and one B. She will be moving to Brooke Weston in Corby in the next school year.

She said: “The results were way better than I was expecting.

“I was so nervous this morning but I was so glad when I opened the envelope.”

Rebekah Bennett-Neild, 16, Kettering, received one A*, six As, one B and one C.

Her proud mum said Rebekah is hoping to one day go to Cambridge University and has now taken the first step.

She said: “I was feeling pretty good about my results until I got to school when I started feeling quite nervous.”

Rebakah is planning on staying at KBA to study history, English literature, psychology and law.

Sabine Brezina, 16, from Corby, was pleased with two of her results, a C in English language and B in English literature, as she had been predicted to receive Es in those subjects.

She said: “I am really happy. I am now planning on going to Tresham College in Corby.”

Daniel Holland, 16, from Geddington, received two A*s, six As and one B.

He said: “I tried not to worry about my results too much because I had done some exams last year and done well in those. I am staying at KBA and will be taking maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.”

Daniel’s friend Owen Coleman, 16, from Geddington, was another high achiever, with one A*, four As and five Bs.

He said: “I had revised quite a lot so I was trying to stay calm about my results but I still felt a bit nervous. I’m staying at KBA next year as well.”

Friends Georgia Keyte, 16, and Chloe Hudson, 16, both from Kettering, are both also staying at KBA after a successful set of results.
