One of Fakenham Academy’s top performers was Joanna Barton, who achieved five 9s, three 8s and two distinction stars.

Joanna, who lives in Melton Constable, is now considering a career in teaching herself, after being inspired by her own teachers.

She said: “I’m delighted with my results, and a bit shocked to be honest.

“With exams you just can’t tell how well you’ve done sometimes.

“I worked hard and had great support from the teachers here at Fakenham Academy.
