It was a day of nerves, laughter and pride as thousands of students picked up their AS, A-Levels or equivalent grades across the area, yesterday morning.
One Skegness Academy student, who seemed to take it all within her stride, managed to bag a staggering set of seven A-Level/equivalents all at a grade A or above.
Gemma was the ‘highest achiever’ for the academy which is sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT).
And Mandy Boyers, Gemma’s mum also joined her daughter as she collected the all important envelope.
“I am so proud of Gemma, It’s absolutely amazing,” she said.
Gemma studied a range of BTECS and is currently on a year’s placement with the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust at Skegness Academy itself.
“I’m really pleased and I am looking into doing a course at Loughborough University in the future,” Gemma said.
Gemma was also nominated for her achievements, academically and as a sporting ambassador at Skegness Academy during the Standard Champion awards where she was voted the winner in the youth category by the community and presented with her prize at the award’s evening held Thursday, July 4.
Gemma has organised competitions, festivals and events at primary schools in support of the academy’s PE department and was recognised for her skills as part of the Young Leaders Team behind the national sports hall athletics finals at Birmingham NEC.
