A Chigwell school has celebrated its A-level high-achiever’s results.

West Hatch High School has published its top students grades.

However, along with other Essex Schools has taken decision not to post its overall results “as a result of the processes by which students have been awarded grades".

Year 13 pupils have seen two years of hard work culminate in unprecedented circumstances after exams were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Today (August 13), pupils received their results based on exam boards calculated grades rather than their own efforts in examinations.

Surina Dhaliewal was the school’s top performing securing two A* and one A.

Daniel Adekanle and Luke Drummond-Poynter were both delighted to achieve an A* and two As.

Ellie Boddington picked up three As, Zackaria Latreche bagged one A*, one A, and a B, while Calum Bagunaid scored A*, A, C.

Headteacher, Daniel Leonard said “Post 16 study is a steppingstone to the future and our students results mean most are able to progress on to their desired further education, training programmes or employment.

“We are delighted that Luke Drummond-Poynter has achieved his dream of being accepted into a Medicine Degree at Imperial; many of our other students will also be moving onto Higher Education, such as Economics, Finance, Criminology and Computer Science at Nottingham, Security and Crime Science at UCL, Animation at the University of Arts, The Art of Visual Effects at Escape Studios and Law at Warwick. A number of our students have also been accepted onto prestigious Higher Apprentices.

“I would like to once again congratulate all of our students for their hard work and achievements this year and wish them the very best of luck for the future."
