GCSE success for Amble students

DELIGHTED Amble students are celebrating today after a job well done in their GCSEs.

There was joy for many of the pupils at James Calvert Spence College – Acklington Road, formerly Coquet High School, who scored highly in their exam results, with some scooping an array of A* grades.

Hard-working Alex Carruthers was just one of the youngsters to grab top results.

The 16-year-old Amble lad bagged himself a total of five A*s, with one in physics and the other four in ICT.

“I am feeling really good. I am really pleased,” he said after opening his envelope, which also revealed he had scored As in maths, religious education, biology, chemistry and geography, as well as a B in history and a C in English.

“I was hoping for this but I didn’t think I would get it. The hard-work paid off,” he added.

Executive headteacher for the Coquet Federation, Christine Graham, paid tribute to her students.

“We are very, very pleased. Some of our students worked very hard and the results reflect that,” she said.
