He is planning on returning to continue his studies at Tuxford Academy Post-16 Centre and said: “I opened the envelope and just saw all the 9s, they were better than I expected. I am really pleased, as I was quite nervous, but I’m ok now.”
Mr Jon Hardy, principal at Tuxford Academy said: “I am very proud to see the hard work and dedication of our students and staff pay off today, especially considering the obstacles that they have had to overcome over the past 18 months.
"Watching the way in which our students have adapted and risen to each new challenge has been inspiring, and I look forward to seeing many of them back here in September as they take the next steps on their educational journeys.”
