Will Huffer, a pupil at St Peter’s School in York and a member of the U18 England football squad, has proved he is an expert in passes on and off the field in today’s GCSE results.
Will secured ten GCSEs, eight of them at grades A and B, despite sitting several of his exams whilst playing in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Bulgaria.
I sat all sciences, French and both English exams in Bulgaria. There were a couple of times we had to rearrange exams because of matches – and after we beat Spain I had to sit my Physics exam the morning after, which was pretty demanding!
Will is celebrating his GCSE results with an afternoon’s training at Leeds Utd, ahead of a match against Huddersfield on Saturday.
Will currently plays for the Leeds Utd U18 side and makes regular appearances as part of the England U18 squad. He is hoping to be selected to play for the national side against Holland in September.
St Peter’s School, founded in 627AD, is one of the oldest schools in the world, and one of the UK’s leading co-educational boarding schools.
