Twins Charlotte and Jason Weldon, both 16, say they helped each other along the way to GCSE success.
TWINS from Jewish Free School pulled off a tremendous double act achieving 16 A* between them.
Bright sparks, Charlotte and Jason Weldon, both 16, say they helped each other along the way to GCSE success.
Jason, who was awarded eight A* and two As, is looking forward to studying history, maths, physics and economics next year.
He said: "English wasn't my best subject but Charlotte used to help me. I would then help her with maths and science. I guess you could say we get on and we are close. I just wanted to get as many A*s as possible. I'm very happy with my results."
Sister Charlotte, who achieved eight A*s, two As and one B, will study English literature, French, history, psychology and dance at A-Level. The keen ballet dancer, who would like to be a journalist or study law, said: "I was quite nervous this morning but when I found out my results I was so happy. I was with my brother when I opened the envelope.
"We have helped each other along the way. Our parents have also helped to push us and our teachers at our school."
Proud mum Avril, who is married to their father Paul and live in Edgware, added: "They have both been outstanding. The day just keeps getting better and better. I am so proud of them. They helped each other to revise and gave each other tips.
"They have always been academically minded and have always been good at school. We are just very proud."
Jewish Free School (JFS) in The Mall, Kenton, has enjoyed another successful year with 91.2 per cent of pupils gaining A*-C grades.
Other noteworthy pupils include Cassandre Greenberg who achieved 10 A* grades and Jacob Muller who achieved 8 A* grades.
Jonathan Miller, JFS headteacher, said: "These GCSE results, following our superb A-level results last week, reinforce the outstanding quality of teaching JFS provides year after year and I extend my hearty congratulations to students, parents and teachers."
