A twelve-year-old boy celebrated achieving the top grade in maths in his A-level results.

Andrew Ejemai, from Brentwood School, got a phenomenal A* grade for his paper, making him the youngest student in the school's history to pass the qualification.

The youngster, in his second year at the school, said he had a natural aptitude for maths but he "still had to do a bit of work!"

He had been hoping for the A* but had not been sure he would get it. He added: "I enjoy maths. It's fun to do maths problems."

Headmaster Ian Davies added: "Andrew is an extraordinary mathematician and we are very proud of his achievement.

"The school is fortunate to have a cohort of exceptional mathematics teachers who are more than able to teach to Oxbridge level."

Ejamai is also excelling in sciences, Latin, Greek and athletics and now hopes to study further maths at A-level.

Andrew's delighted mother Ronke Ejemai shouted: "Wow" when her son revealed his marks. "I am just so excited. He has done so well with the school and Mr Williams has really encouraged him."

She added: "The encouragement, all the facilities, this environment has been very supportive."
