A past winner of the TV show Child Genius was among the A Level success stories at Horsforth School in Leeds.

Thomas Frith, who is just 14, sat another two A Levels four years early, having already gained two.

The 2015 Child Genius winner already holds A* grades in maths and further maths, and now has an A in computer science and a C in additional further maths.

His achievements mean he has been invited to the UK Mathematics Trust Olympiad Training Camp over the summer holidays, as one of the most able young mathematicians in the country.

Headteacher Dr Paul Bell said:

“To say that Thomas is only just about to start Year 10 is amazing. We are really proud of what he has achieved and glad that we could support him to fulfil his desire to excel. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Thomas.”

Top achievers in year 13 at the school were Victoria Daramy-Williams, Hannah Bainbridge, Rachel Brown and Anna Cartledge, who were thrilled to gain three A* grades in their A Level results.

Victoria will go on to study natural sciences at Cambridge University, Hannah will study drama and theatre arts at the University of Birmingham, Rachel will study chemistry at the University of York and Anna is off to the University of Sheffield to study medicine.
