Eve nabbed two A*s and A, and also created her own graphic novel as part of an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

She said: “I’m so pleased, I think the graphic novel was rubbish but they seemed to like it... It’s exciting yes, but I’m currently panicking about not having been sent a reading list yet...

It’s such a weird day, I even got lost on the way in today...”

He said: “I’m really pleased, I get to go to where I wanted for uni, and well, a B in English is not something to be sniffed at.”
