It was all smiles as students and parents at Blue Coat celebrated what the school has described as a "fantastic set of A-level results".

Nine students – Nahian Ahmed, Josh Brown, Hannah Crabb, Josh Edwards, Amelia Handley, Jennifer Kelly, Caitlin McGraw, Georgia Southern and Sophie Temesi – achieved A* grades in all of their subjects.

Jennifer Kelly, from Failsworth, will be going to read History at Trinity College, Oxford, after she achieved three A* grades.

Jen, who loves history and reading and is a keen cyclist, set up and ran a literature club at the Blue Coat Sixth Form to help share her passion for reading. In her spare time, Jen listens to history podcasts, reads History Magazines as well as visiting museums and historical places of interest. 

Nahian Ahmed achieved three A* grades and his next destination will be King’s College London, to study medicine.

Head teacher Rob Higgins said: "We are absolutely delighted with the outcomes that our young people have achieved.

"This year has been the most difficult of years for all of our students but they have never given up; they have kept working and kept going throughout incredibly challenging circumstances and as a result, they have all achieved the grades that they deserve, and ones that they have earned.

"Our students have also been well supported by their families and their staff who have all gone above and beyond over the last 18 months to provide our young people with the levels of care, support guidance and nurture that they have needed.

"I am incredibly proud of all of our students and also our wider school community for how we have all worked together to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our young people.

"They are now off to some of the most prestigious universities, courses and apprenticeships across the country, and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours."
