A FORMER Kesgrave High School student is celebrating today after finding out that his A-level business studies mark was among the highest in the country.

Harry Putus, 18, scooped three As in his A-levels but there was even more reason to be happy when he received a letter congratulating him for being in the top ten in the country for business studies.

He said: “I was really surprised.
