Imtiyaz Miah achieved A*s in maths, further maths and physics and is off to study computer science at Christ College, Cambridge University.

Interim principal of the Seven Kings school, Jo Spencer, said she was "incredibly proud" of her students as some 10per cent achieved straight As or above and an impressive number achieved AAB.

Imtiyaz said: "My family were screaming this morning when we found out I got in to Cambridge. From that, I knew my results were good but I never thought I had done this well. I'm excited to get started in October."

Imtiyaz's dad said: "All his late nights playing Fortnite have paid off, I knew they would.

"We weren't strict about making him follow a different path, because I knew he would make it in computer science and gaming.

"That's what he's good at."
