Hellesdon High School: Hard work pays off for dedicated Kim

A teenager who really 'worked her socks off', according to her headteacher, has been rewarded with an outstanding set of GCSE results.

Kim Clarkson, 16, arrived at Hellesdon High School this morning to discover she had achieved seven A* grades and two A grades following this summer's exams.

She said: 'I'm really excited. It's so nice to know all the hard work I have done has paid off. I'm really excited about next year and starting my A-levels.'

The teenager, from Hellesdon, said she was hoping for top grades and felt she had worked as hard as she could to achieve them over the two years.

Working for at least one or two hours at home every evening to revise for her exams, she was determined to put herself in a good position ahead of beginning her A-levels.
