By Jill Dando News

Priory Community School Academy Year 11 students in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, excelled across every subject with some fantastic individual efforts.

Charlotte Thorpe secured ten grade 9s and one grade 8 while Charlie Lock achieved seven grade 9s and two grade 7s.

Meanwhile, Head Boy Tom Harding achieved nine grade 9s and one grade 8 and Head Girl Ruby Minty collected her seven grade 9s, three grade 8s and one distinction.

Both of them will embark on medical careers after their A Levels.

Tom has been working at an NHS Medical Practice in Nailsea since April, helping to administrate the Covid19 programme.

Tom said: “I’m delighted at my results. I really like helping people and I find medicine really fascinating. Part of my job is helping with the Covid vaccination programme and I have seen how it affects everyone.”

Principal Angelos Markoutsas said: “To say we are proud of our students is an understatement. 

“Throughout the past 18 months they have shown drive, determination and courage alongside great compassion. 

“Today was a wonderful opportunity to be able to celebrate students’ achievements and to wish to them well in their future endeavours.”
