Playing the proud parent

My eldest received his GCSE results back today. He ended up with 10 GCSEs including 3 A*s and 4 As. His English literature paper was one of the top five marks in the country. Considerating that he was educated at a state school and boys are notorious for doing less well at English, I think that this is a very good result indeed.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the English education system, all year 11s take GCSEs in a wide variety of subjects. In order to take A levels you must get 5 GSCEs at a C grade or above.
Luckily my son plans to take English Literature at A level as well as Maths, Russian and History.

Thank you so much for the congratulations.

We are all very pleased.

I had not appreciated the high drama of it all until today.
