The performance of this year’s A-level cohort at Campion Sixth Form has left the school’s headmaster “extremely proud” of their fortitude in the face of adversity.

Of the pupils at the Wingletye Lane school in Hornchurch who sat A-Levels, 69pc managed A*-C grades.

This year’s A-level cohort are the year group that pupil Paddy Dear was a part of until he sadly died of sepsis while on a school trip in March 2016.

Keith Williams, headteacher, told the Recorder: “This year group lost one of their own and went through a very difficult time but I’m extremely proud of how well they’ve come through it all.

“I’m really happy with our BTEC cohort who did more vocational courses as well, many of them were offered places at university and that’s a fantastic achievement.”

Ryan Montgomery, of Standen Avenue, Hornchurch, was absolutely thrilled to discover this morning that he had got the grades he needed to get into the prestigious Queen’s College, Cambridge.

He told the Recorder: “It all just feels a bit surreal at the moment, I can’t quite believe it.

“It’s brilliant news. I didn’t think I’d do this well so it’s a really big relief to know it’s all done.”

Ryan is now off to study History and French at the top university. He is one of two Campion students to make the grade to get into the 800-year-old institution.

“When I went to interview in December I thought it went okay, so I was a little bit nervous I wouldn’t quite get the grades I needed, but I’m really happy I did.

“My parents are over the moon, too.”
