She said: "I feel just brilliant and absolutely shocked. Scarborough TEC has a really nice atmosphere and the staff and students really respect each other.
"I'm going to Manchester Metropolitan University to study Psychology and Sociology and it's all thanks to the team of tutors at Scarborough TEC. They have supported me and challenged me to help me get these incredible results."
