Ark Academy pupils were "relieved", "astounded" and "ecstatic" as friends sat together chatting about their results.

Shukri Lloyd, 16, received six grade 9s, the highest score, three grade 8s, one 7 and a C in additional maths.

"I feel good," she said.

Her mum Khadra added: "I couldn't sleep the last two nights. I couldn't sleep worrying about her."
