Ex-Long Sutton Hockey Club player Issy Oldershaw-Ellis hit the target with her GCSE results at Wisbech Grammar School.

As if to confirm her abilities of the hockey pitch and athletics field, where Issy has competed for her school at both discus and shot put, the South Holland-based student bagged a 9 in Physical Education, as well as an A in Geography and 7s in the Sciences and Maths.

Issy, of Sutton St James but now at Wisbech Town Hockey Club, said: "I am thrilled with the results I achieved in my GCSEs and I am so happy that all the hours of studying has paid off.

"It was quite a long wait for the results so my feelings varied.

"But as we got closer and closer to the day, I felt more and more nervous.

"But now I am going to be studying Biology, Chemistry and History at Wisbech Grammar School."

Headmaster Chris Staley said: "This has been a gratifying year for GCSEs at Wisbech Grammar School considering the curriculum changes, the move to the new and more rigorous 9-1 grading system.

"Once again, we are well ahead of the national pass rates, both overall and at the top end, which is especially pleasing given that many of our papers are the more challenging IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) qualification.

"I am incredibly pleased by their achievements, the dedication of the staff and last, but by no means least, the support from parents and guardians."
