Students from Haywood Academy in Burslem gathered to open the envelopes which revealed their GCSE results. 

One student who is celebrating is Oxford hopeful Ben Meir, who is one of four at the High Lane based school to receive a 9 in English.

Ben also achieved A*s in History, Drama and ICT, As in Science, Additional Science and Music, 7 in Mathematics, 9 in English Language, 8 in English and B in Further Mathematics.

He will now be going to Haywood Sixth Form Academy to study A Level English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. He said, “I am really happy with my results. The new grading system is brilliant, it gives students the opportunity to go the extra mile. It is very rewarding for those students who are ambitious. Haywood Academy has been very supportive.”

Sanjana Abed is also very pleased with her results. She achieved 8 in Mathematics, 7 in English Literature and 6 in English Language. She also received As in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Design, French, History and Further Mathematics.

She commented, “I am really happy with my results. I will go on to do A Levels now and hopefully in the future, Pharmacy. Haywood has been great and the teaching is really good.”

Dilesh Parmar, Principal at Haywood Academy, added, “We are exceptionally proud of this year’s students as the newly reformed GCSEs are significantly more challenging. Many of our students have achieved excellent results having worked incredibly hard and we are thrilled to have some 9s amongst the results. We have had a mixture of students going on to A Levels and Work Based Learning and we wish them all the best.”
