The head of Letchworth’s Fearnhill School has saluted her sixth-formers after they received their A-level results this morning, all securing places at the university or college of their choice.
Stand-out performers included Anthony Macit, who achieved two A*s and an A grade, and Melissa Drake, who got results of A*, A and B.
Anthony is set to study maths at Warwick, while Melissa will go to Birmingham to read medicine.
Head Liz Ellis told the Comet: “These are just two examples – there were many other successes and all students deserve to be congratulated for their hard work and dedication, especially where they have overcome particular personal challenges.
“With current national changes to the A-level courses, it is also reassuring to know that high standards have been maintained at Fearnhill.

“Thanks must also go to the teaching and support staff at Fearnhill, who have been utterly committed to students’ success and always go above and beyond in terms of the time and support they give.
“It is always a great pleasure to wish our students well on results day as they move into the next stage of their learning.”
