Amongst the high achievers was Joel Dungworth. His results included two Grade 9s in English Literature and English Language, a Grade 8 in Maths, along with five 5A*s and 2As. As well as being highly focused academically, Joel embraced the sports and enrichment opportunities offered by the David Ross Education Trust, ranging from an international expedition to the Caribbean to performing in front of top Olympians. He said: “I am delighted with my results, especially with my Grade 9s in English. It has taken a lot of hard work to get there, but the extra effort has paid off.

“My teachers have been brilliant and with the help of the school, I have been able to continue with my other interests whilst still achieving a good set of GCSEs. I have really enjoyed my time at Charnwood College and cannot wait to begin Sixth Form next week. I will be studying A levels in English, Biology and Geography.”
