As Crosspool sixth formers celebrated their A Level results this week, one Tapton school student found out that he’d scooped seven A* grades.
George Lee achieved the top grade in French, Spanish, general studies, maths, further maths, critical thinking and physics. He is now heading to Imperial College in London to study maths.
He was one of 31 students at Tapton who achieved straight As and A* grades. However, school’s overall pass rate at the three top grades – A*, A and B – fell from 63% to 56%.
