FOR the second week in a row Lord Williams’s School pupils are celebrating their exam results.

With results out on Thursday, students from the Thame School have done exceptionally well with 72 per cent getting five or more A* to C grades.

Headteacher David Wybron said: “I would like to congratulate our students on their considerable achievements.

“Their hard work and the invaluable guidance from our teachers and support staff has led to a very pleasing outcome.”

Two star achievers were Greg Duncan and Tom Hook. Greg managed 10 A*s and one A and is planning to study maths, chemistry, biology and French.

He is hoping to study medicine at university.

Tom got five A*s, four As and a B and a C. His A*s were in the sciences in which he achieved full marks in several modules.

He wants to pursue a career in science or geography when he finishes education.

Delighted with her results is Sam Hoare who got an A*, four As, a B and four Cs.

She is especially happy because she had convinced herself she had failed maths but it turned out she had managed to pass it.

Chris Daplyn, head of Year 11, said: “It has been a challenging year for some but they’ve come through shining.

“It is not just about the results, they were a great year and I have high hopes for their futures. This was a big stepping stone towards their future and I’m really proud of their achievements.”

More than 97 per cent of pupils achieved five or more passes at A* to G.
