There were lots of smiles at Mayfield School in Portsmouth this morning.
A total of 54 per cent of students got the gold standard of 5 or more A*-C grades including English and maths.
James Martin-Jones, 16, from Osier Close, got an A, a B and 3 Cs.
He is going on to study at South Downs College. He will study computing, 2d art, music technology and graphics.
He said: ‘ I’m feeling very pleased. I’m very happy.
‘I didn’t expect to get an A in computing because normally I don’t do very well in that.
‘I’m aiming to work in the games industry in the creative side.’
