Trio of boy twins secure 48 top-grade GCSEs
Three sets of boy twins from the same school were celebrating today after amassing an impressive set of A-grade GCSE passes.
Adam and William Davies, Luke and Miles Holbrook and Dale and Lucas Currell reversed the traditional trend of girls doing best by notching a clutch of top-grade results.
Between them the boys, all aged 16, gained a total of 48 A* and A-grade GCSEs.
They will receive their results at independent Brighton College in Brighton, East Sussex, where 70% of pupils achieved A* or A-grade GCSEs.
Headmaster Richard Cairns said 100% of students gained five A* to C grades, following on from last week when the students there gained the best A-level grades of any co-educational school in England.
Mr Cairns said: "Our record GCSE results are testament to great teaching and tremendous hard work from pupils who also invest time and energy in the dance studio, the music school and on the playing fields.
"It is especially good to see boys turning out results every bit as impressive as the girls."
