TEENAGER Joshua Gray was one of the stars of the show on GCSE day at Chalfonts Community College after securing an A in English Literature despite suffering from dyslexia.

Joshua, 16, from Farnham Common, said: "I'm absolutely ecstastic, especially with my English result, I'm going to do it at A Level now!"

The teenager got eight As in total, including three A*s.

Victoria Brooke-Hill, 16, managed to achieve an incredible 12 A*s and one A.

She said: "I'm absolutely delighted with my results, I really pleased with how well I've done."

Elsewhere, 16 year old Harry Greenwood from Chalfont St Peter, was delighted with his results after being written off at middle school.

He said: "I'm very pleased, I'm going on to do chemistry, psychology and geography at A Level now - I'm still in shock to be honest!"

Eleanor Rayner, 16, from Iver Heath managed to bag five As.

She said: "I'm really pleased, especially to get an A in maths and B in graphics, which I didn't think I would."

In total 65 per cent of the students who sat their exams got A*-C including English and maths and 74 per cent achieved five of more A*-Cs.

Principal Sue Tanner said: "I am so thrilled the students have been rewarded for all their hard work. There are some absolutely stunning results with many achieving 14 or 15 outstanding grades."
