A student at St Wilfrid’s School has achieved a 100 per cent score in GCSE physics.

Ronnie Slowinski was one nine high-flying students at the school in Southgate to sweep the board when it came to A*/A grades.

Twins Matthew and Sarah Hennessy also did their parents proud with a clutch of A*s, A’s and B’s between them.

Some 65 per cent of students achieved at least five passes at A*-C, with 53 per cent gaining at least five A*-C grades including English and maths.

The students who achieved the most A*/A grades were: Ania Jasko, with 12, Ronnie Slowinski (11), Sophie Ridge (10), Matthew Hennessy (10), Shaun Erickson (9), Holly Atkinson (9), Harry Wilson (8), David O’Connor (7) and David Selby (7).

When it came to his physics result, Ronnie said: “I saw the UMS 100 and thought ‘wow that’s crazy’!”

He was particularly happy with his further maths result at which he received an A* distinction and was “really shocked” to learn he had earned an A* in French.

Ronnie plans to study maths, further maths, chemistry and physics at A-level at St Wilfrid’s and was even thinking of taking on a tutor to do extra study at home.

Then, with any luck, it’s off to Cambridge to study maths and physics or theoretical physics.

He said: “I just love maths and physics and want to do that daily.”

Headteacher Michael Ferry offered his congratulations to all the students.

He said: “In an era where it is becoming increasingly harder to achieve the higher GCSE grades, many of our students will be very happy and will have achieved the results they need to go on to the next phase of their education or training.

“This is testament to their hard work and that of their teachers.”
