LONG Sutton’s Peele Community College celebrated yet another successful year with 74 per cent of students achieving five GCSE’s at grades A*-C.

Some 54 per cent of students gained five A*-C in subjects including English and maths.

And there were some outstanding individual performances.

Oliver Embling (16), from Guyhirn, gained his passport to Spalding High School to study A-levels after notching up eight A*s among his 12 GCSE passes.

Oliver will study chemistry, physics, maths and IT but has so far not decided on a career.

He was delighted with his results and said: “They are brilliant.”

Stage-struck Robert Manghan (16), from Gedney Dyke, gained five A*s and two As among his 12 passes and is heading off to the College of West Anglia to study B-Tec technical theatre.

He said: “I am very pleased, I must say. I am going to study B-Tec technical theatre for two years and possible an acting course afterwards.

“I have always liked shows and films. I wrote the script for the Christmas pantomime this last year.”

Jordan English (16), from Sutton Bridge, also shone with four A*s and three As among her 12 GCSE passes.

She will now go to the sixth form at Spalding High or the King Edward VII Grammar School at King’s Lynn.

Jordan said she had a nervous wait for her results and collected them with her mum and dad beside her.

“I didn’t want to come in by myself,” she said.

Delighted headteacher Ian Charles said: “Students of all abilities have risen to the many examination and coursework challenges to achieve considerable success.

“Students, parents, carers and staff at the college need to be congratulated.

“We are very proud to have supported Year 11 students to attain their individual achievements and wish them all every success in their future college, training, apprenticeship and employment placements.

“The class of 2011 at The Peele Community College have been a very enthusiastic group of young people who will move on to even greater academic, professional and personal successes in the future.”

Among students celebrating at the school were Jessica Hallifax (16), from Tydd St Mary, who will study nursing in King’s Lynn, and Lucy Carr (16), from Whaplode, who will study hairdressing at George Farmer.
