PAIGE-Amber Barrie had a tough time at Charter Academy in Southsea
But she pulled through and managed to get nine GCSEs.
In Year Nine she started to go off the rails and teachers were unsure whether she would do well.
But with help from her mum Charlotte, 37, she knuckled down and did the best she could.
Paige-Amber is now going to Highbury College to start a mechanics course.
She then hopes to become an engineer in the British Army.
She said: ‘I’m really pleased. It’s thanks to my mum and the teachers that I’ve got these results.’
