Today is GCSE results day and Eleanor was at school bright and early to collect her brown envelope containing her grades.
She put so much effort in to her revision and is very pleased, as are we, with her results, 8 B's, 2 C's and an A in Maths, which I'm especially pleased about.
We spent eight months arguing with the school about Maths as they wanted Eleanor to take a Foundation exam paper, which would have capped the grade she could achieve at a C. We had to fight so hard for them to allow her to take the Higher Tier paper and I think this grade proves that we were right to do so.
Eleanor's had a meeting with a sixth form tutor this morning and she's been offered a place on all the A level courses she wants to take, English Language, Psychology, Sociology and Biology.
We're taking Eleanor out for a meal tonight to celebrate. Well done, Eleanor, we're very proud of you.
