Pupils, parents and staff at Wollaston School have celebrated “excellent” GCSE results.

Headteacher Michael Browne said what was particularly impressive this year was the quality of results across a broad range of students.

One hundred per cent of students achieved some academic success and the top 10 students shared 55 A* between them.

There were also some outstanding individual results at the school.

Ashleigh Pittams of Earls Barton, achieved 10 A* grades, Amy Collins, of Cogenhoe, achieved eight A* grades and three As.

Harmony Eales, of Earls Barton, achieved eight A* grades and four As, closely followed by Jessica Bridgman, also of Earls Barton, who achieved six A* grades and four As.

Yasmin Whayeb of Wellingborough, gained six A* grades and four As, and leading the way for the boys was Oliver Smith, of Wollaston, who achieved six A* and five A grades.

A delighted Mr Browne was full of praise for all his students and his staff and added a special word of thanks to the parents for all their support.

He said: “we are immensely proud of these results, which closely matched those of last year which were the best in the school’s history.”
