In particular, Abdi Yusuf was singled out for praise by the school’s headteacher Stuart McLaughlin.

He said: “Abdi Yusuf came to The Brittons Academy at the start of Year 9.

“He is a looked after child and when he arrived it was very clear he was struggling in the school environment.

“His behaviour certainly was not at the standard we would expect but, through the support of our SEND team, other staff and Abdi’s own hard work, we are very pleased that he has achieved an excellent set of GCSE results and has laid the foundation for achieving good A-levels at college next year.

Overall, the headteacher said he wanted to congratulate the class of 2016 and the staff for all their hard work.

He said: “I am pleased with the results for The Brittons Academy this year.

The new exam measures focus very much on the progress made by every student across the year group and we are pleased that this year’s results show very clearly the best progress ever for a cohort at The Brittons Academy.

“We also had some outstanding individual results with a large number of students achieving a high number of A*-Cs.”
