The hard work of pupils at Brittons Academy paid off this year, with many pupils earning fantastic GCSE results.

The school, in Ford Lane, Rainham, bid farewell to its latest Year 11 cohort amid a wave of optimism.

Acting headteacher Suzanne Scott told the Recorder: “We are happy to be celebrating the achievements of our students, who worked so hard, particularly with so much uncertainty around the new numbered GCSEs in English and maths.

“It’s really pleasing to see the students applying to some of the best sixth form colleges locally and we wish them all the best in the future.”

Britany Hamersley earned an incredible 9 in maths, marking her as one of the very best young mathematicians in the country.

Along with friends Kiran Kaul, Alice Webb, Madeline Welsh and head girl Caitlin Gregory, Britany was shocked at how well she had performed in the new look exams.

She said: “It’s a massive relief, I’m really just so, so happy to have done so well. It’s made all the hard work worth it.”

Steven Gjegji was another student breathing in a huge sigh of relief in the results hall.

Despite claiming a number of impressive A grades, he was most relieved to discover he had managed a 5 in maths, an exam he believed he had failed.

Now preparing to head to Havering Sixth Form in September, he told the Recorder: “I’m really happy with my results, and massively relieved.

“I haven’t even told my mum yet, she’s still outside in the car waiting.”
