THE sums added up to success for a teenage maths student.

James Grace, a pupil at Todmorden High School, scored 100 per cent in his GCSE maths exam, putting him among the top students in the country.

James took the first of his GCSE maths exams in November and received his results in a rewards assembly held for Year ten.

He is part of a group of 40 students that are currently achieving one or two grades higher than their predicted targets for maths.

Ian Wroe, head of maths, said: “I am really pleased that so many students have begun their GCSE course in such a positive way. We aim to build upon this success and ensure the students continue to aim high for the future.”
