Teenagers are in the top five; GCSE RESULTS.

FOUR teenagers at a Coventry independent school were among the top five GCSE candidates in the country.

The 16-year-olds at the selective King Henry VIII School, in Warwick Road, did astonishingly well in their GCSEs.

Nina Patel-Grainger not only achieved a starred A in English but was among the top five performers out of 49,143 candidates nationwide.

Holly Duckworth and Lucy Power were in the top five for German out of 63,512 candidates, and Jayna Mistry was in the top five for physics out of 17,569 candidates.

The four are all delighted and were making plans to celebrate their success with family and friends.

Jayna said: "I'm going out for a meal with friends tonight and then I'm going home and myself and my family are going to open the champagne."

School spokeswoman Viv Duckers said: "It's quite an achievement to have four in the top five in the country from one school."
