Date published: 10 August 2021


It was all smiles this morning as students and parents celebrated a fantastic set of A Level results at Blue Coat.

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

The students on our picture (below) achieved 50 A* grades between them all.

Blue Coat Headteacher 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."

Among numerous highlights for the school came from Jenifer Kelly (pictured above), who achieved 3 A* grades and will be going to read History at Oxford.

Nahian Ahmed achieved 3 A* grades and will be going to study Medicine at King’s College London.

Twins Georgia and Francesca Southern, who are pictured (above) with their mum, achieved 5A* and 1 A grade between them.

Francesca will be studying architecture at Liverpool University and Georgia will be studying Psychology at Leeds University.
