S6 pupils, Maisie and Euan Huey, open their exam results at Gryffe High School

Gryffe High School pupils celebrate their exam results

Pupils from Gryffe High School in Houston, Renfrewshire, were excited to open their exam results.

One teenager whose results are taking him all the way to Oxford is S6 pupil Euan Huey.

Euan, who opened his results at the school, said: "I was sitting with a conditional offer to study History at Oxford this morning. Everything was resting on these results. It was terrifying and has been for a good couple of months. It's such a relief to open them today and find out I've got three As at Advanced Higher."

Keeping it in the family, Euan's twin sister, Maisie, also gained three Advanced Highers. She said: "I got two As and a B at Advanced Higher. I had an unconditional offer to study English Literature at Glasgow University, so while I didn't need these results to get in, it was a good year and I learned a lot."

Colin Johnson, Headteacher at Gryffe High School, said: "Exam results day is nerve-wracking, and I'm pleased that so many young people in our school have achieved what they wanted. All pupils worked exceptionally hard and they have been supported by dedicated teachers, school support staff and their parents.

"It's a joy to see their faces as they open their results and celebrate with their friends."
