Northgate High School teen Emily Coghill gained four A grades at A-level, including one of the top five marks in the country for English literature.

The Cambridge-bound 18-year-old said: “I am astonished and very happy at getting the top five in the country for English Literature. It was quite a lot of work but I never felt I was working myself to the bone and I really enjoyed the course.

“I had excellent teachers and was really well prepared by the high school.”

Meanwhile Yusuf Mohammad, 18, of Tuddenham Road, Ipswich, was ecstatic after getting six As.

He said: “I'm feeling really happy, I hoped I would do this well and it all came together.”
