Adrian Polius, was almost speechless, when he opened his GCSE envelope to find out he had achieved four A*s, six As and one C.

Head teacher Paul Halliwell said: “Adrian has worked really hard to achieve the best of his ability.

“When he came hear in year six he was at the equivalent of a B grade, now he has advanced to A*s.

“He is very driven and knows this is the gateway to success in the future.”

After Adrian had a chance to absorb his results, he said: “I had not expected this many A*s and As.”
