A-level results: Students clambered at the gates of Woodbridge High School for results

More than 30 students were clambering at the gates of Woodbridge High School desperate to get their results over and done with.

Students were outside the school in St Barnabas Road, Woodford Green, while teachers got the results, and tissues, ready.

Monema Chaudery, 17 who was picking up her AS-level results, said: “People were anxious and scared. Some people were really scared and everyone was supporting each other.”

Monema, who wants to study economics after finishing her A-levels, said while she was nervous she felt more concerned about the A-level students doing well.

“Everyone just wanted to get their results, the whole atmosphere was busy and everyone was chatting.”
