Delight at Sir John Lawes

RAIN falling as they collected their results did not dampen the delight of Sir John Lawes students in Harpenden, many of whom were celebrating strings of A and A* grades.

All of them had achieved what they needed to take them on to the next stage of their careers.

Among the success stories, 11 students achieved 10 or more As and A* grades while Jamie Carr, who achieved 10 A* grades, commented: “I’m ecstatic; it’s such a relief. I know my whole family will be delighted.”

Head of Year, Christine Richardson, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with many great individual successes across the ability range. I’m very proud of the whole year group and everybody who has worked with them.”
