Adam Janes (16) who is making waves in the rowing world has clocked up 9 A*s (A*s in English Language, Maths, Religious Studies, Science, Additional Science, History, Geography and Spanish) and 1 A in English Literature in his GCSEs at St Peter’s School York.

In July, Adam rowed for England in the Under18 Eight and won a Gold medal at the Home International Regatta in Cork in July (see article).

‘This is another very impressive performance given he has had a very committed rowing year on top of his GCSEs’, said St Peter’s Director of Rowing Dr Jamie Macleod, (pictured congratulating Adam on his results).

Adam joined fellow St Peter’s pupils achieving their best GCSE results ever with 77% A*/A awarded. 20 pupils gained at least 8 A*s and 6 achieved 10 straight A*s.
