Ipswich School twins Olivia and Will MacDonnell-Hannah and Lewis and Paul Glancey all achieved a plethora of grade 9s (previously known as A*s) on Thursday, August 20.

Olivia and Will, from Ipswich both achieved 10 grade 9s, while Lewis and Paul finished their studies with 18 top grades between them.

But it wasn’t a case of sibling rivalry between either of the sets of twins, with even competitive Lewis and Paul admitting they were both on hand to help each other out through their studies.

Olivia said: “It has been hard waiting for the results, but it shows that hard work pays off.”

Dr Glancey, father of Lewis and Paul, from Colchester, added: “I am very proud of them both.”

Overall, 99.2% of pupils at the central Ipswich school achieved a grade 4 or higher in English and maths.
