A west Norfolk teenager has celebrated a clean sweep of top GCSE grades.

James Pearson, from Hunstanton and a pupil at Wisbech Grammar School, achieved eight grade nines and one A*.

He only dropped five marks for his physics GCSE - achieving 97pc.

James said: 'I would like to thank the staff there, particularly my science and maths teachers, all of whom have been truly inspiring'.

He also extended his thanks to the staff at Glebe House School, Hunstanton, who taught him until the age of 13.
