The majority of students have exceeded their expectations at Greig City Academy, according to the head of sixth form.
Star performers included Michael Owusu, who achieved three A grades in biology, chemistry and mathematics and will be going to Leeds University to do a degree in accounting and finance.
Also “jumping for joy” on the day were Andrea Arhagba, set to study English at university after receiving two As and a B, as well as Kyristian Gora, who gained an A* in sociology, an A in media studies and a B in psychology.
Head of sixth form Jon Holt, back at school fresh from completing the largest offshore sailing race in the world with a crew of Greig City students, the 608 mile Fastnet, said: “Many of our students this year have exceeded the grades that their prior attainment suggested they were going to achieve. It is now clear that they made excellent progress at Greig and the school has helped open doors for them.
“The same spirit that saw some of these sixth formers compete and finish the Fastnet has also been applied to their studies. It is all about making a difference.”
