He now hopes to use his results to apply to study medicine at university and one day hopes to become a doctor.
Former All Hallows High School pupil, Charlotte Ellaby, said: “I am really excited I got into the university of my choice and will continue to study the subject I love.” She will now go on to study economics at Kings College, London after receiving an A* in law and three A grades in economics, maths and further maths.

“The grades I achieved were thanks to the support of staff at Pendleton.”
It was a similar story for those studying on Vocational courses, with 80% of students achieving high grades.
Former Albion Academy pupil, Jessica Singh, achieved a triple distinction star in applied science, the highest possible grade for those studying on a Vocational course. She said: “I feel very relieved after receiving my results and it just shows hard work really does pay off.”
