Students returned to their school with trepidation this morning, but many left with big smiles spread across their faces having achieved a great set of A-level results.

The hours of hard work teenagers of The Campion School, Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, sacrificed paid off in full making parents and teachers extremely proud.

With a beaming smile Harrison Houseago, 18, of Hornchurch, revealed to the Recorder his impressive results.

“I studied biology, chemistry, physics and maths,” he said.

“And I got three As and an A*, I’m so happy.”

The youngster - after celebrating with friend George Adams also 18 and from Hornchurch - will be off to study medicine at Kings University in central London.

Wracked by nerves, Will Chuter, 18, of Collier Row, found himself unable to sleep and spent the whole night awake.

He said: “I’m so happy. I’m thrilled. I didn’t get a wink a sleep last night. It was a real relief to get the email this morning.”

The teenager can rest easy tonight and continue with his plans to study law at Durham University, Durham.

Headteacher, Keith Williams said: “We had 122 students apply to university this year and we are trying to make sure they get into their first choice.

“I think overall, this year group has done well. At the top end, due to the nature of the A-levels, we have seen a slight decrease but the number of pupils passing three A-levels has increased.

“Those taking BTECS, have been outstanding and the staff have done fantastically well there.”

Cuan Barbeau, 17, the school captain, achieved an impressive three As and a B and is off to Queen Mary University to study medicine.

There were tears for some students who did not meet expected results but there are plenty of options available.
