Hipperholme Grammar School pupil, Olivia Pearson, is one step closer towards her professional golf dream following some impressive A-Level results.

The Halifax-based school has recorded a 25 per cent rise in A*s and As since 2017 and reported a 93 per cent pass rate in its 2018 A-Level results.

Olivia, who has represented Yorkshire Girls in golf and continues to impress on the fairway, achieved A*s in geography and sports studies as well as an A in biology to get the results needed to study Golf Management at Birmingham University from September.

Further success stories from Bramley Lane included Will Luty who has decided to study mathematics at Edinburgh University following an A* in the subject. He also achieved an A* in psychology, an A in further mathematics and Bs in physics and French.

Emilia Cooper will begin her Theatre Studies and Drama course after she achieved As in English and history and a C in music.

Jackie Griffiths, Hipperholme Grammar School headteacher, said: “I am thrilled that the hard work and diligent approach from our pupils, coupled with the outstanding teaching and support from our staff, has resulted in such excellent A-Level results.”
