Exam success for Seafarers' Bursary recipient
Amadi Gray is one of ten Royal Hospital School pupils in this year's GCSE cohort supported by Greenwich Hospital as a result of his seafaring background.
Greenwich Hospital is the School's parent charity. It was established in 1694 and one of its objectives is to provide charitable support through education to serving and retired personnel of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and their dependents.
MENSA had identified Amadi as a high achiever at the age of only 7 and he joined the society in 2009. Today, his GCSE results confirm his academic potential. He gained eight A*/A equivalents (9-7 on the new scale) amongst his impressive set of grades. Amadi will be continuing into sixth form at the Royal Hospital School to study English Literature, Business and Film for A Levels this September.
Amadi's mother commented, "Thanks to the support shown to Amadi by the school and Greenwich Hospital, Amadi has had the privilege of experiencing an incredibly varied and diverse education which has accumulated in his successful GCSE results. The enthusiasm and dedication of his teachers has been inspirational to Amadi. I am looking forward to Amadi's continued development and success within RHS."
