HUNDREDS of students across Northwich have finally found out their A-level results today, Thursday, after months of waiting.
Students collecting their results this morning after a nail-biting wait to see if they had achieved the results they needed to get into their chosen universities.
The Guardian visited schools and colleges across the town to find out how everyone had done.
At The Grange School, headteacher Christopher Jeffery said he was delighted with the results the school’s students had received.
He said: “It’s unbelievable how many university offers our students have had.”
One of the Hartford school’s star pupils is fundraising hero Charlie Witter who achieved two As and an A*.
The 18-year-old from Whitegate was diagnosed with a brain tumour in March 2011 and endured a five-week course of radiotherapy at The Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology, while also studying for his GCSE’s.
He was given the all-clear in August 2011 and has since launched a mission to raise funds for the hospital that saved his life.
A spokesman for the Clatterbridge Centre said: “Charlie is such a bright boy. It was absolutely marvellous that he got such fantastic results for his GCSE’s and now he has done it again.
“He has been fundraising for the Clatterbridge throughout his time at sixth form and has galvanised the whole school to join in – they’ve raised thousands.”
Charlie now plans to study architecture at Liverpool University.
At Sir John Deane’s College, students exceeded their expectations.
Twins Molly and Sophie Finnigan, from Davenham, achieved four As and three As and an A*, respectively, and will now study natural sciences at Lancaster University with their friend Alexandra Hurst, also 18.
Alexandra, from Davenham, achieved three A*s and an A.
