Year 12 twins, Christopher and Stephen Hierons have managed to achieve a full house of near-perfect A level results.
Christopher and Stephen, 18, achieved all A*s and As in their chosen subjects. Christopher saw results of three A*s in Biology, History and his extended project qualification (EPQ) with an A in Chemistry whilst Stephen got a straight set of As in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics.
The boys will now go their separate ways as they move to university in September with Christopher choosing to study biomedical sciences at Durham University and Stephen enrolling on a course of biochemistry at the University of St Andrew's.
Adam Bainbridge, 18, has become the first student to leave NSB’s Sixth Form for an Oxbridge place. Adam, who was Head Boy, is now heading off to read law at Jesus College. His offer of a place has been supported with exceptional grades in his A levels - an A* in Biology and As in Religious Studies and Spanish.
This marks a significant milestone for the newest independent Sixth Form in the region. Adam’s results reflect continued success for the Sixth Form which this year sees a high proportion of Year 11 students go on to study in Year 12 at NSB.
