Debenham High School student Calvin Coe, who has never missed a day of education and got 12A*s, says hard work played a major part in his success.

Not only has the 16-year-old from nearby Aspall been studying hard but he has also been devoting himself to his swimming.

He spends 10 hours a week in the pool training for regional and county competitions.

Now after getting the top grades plus one A he has set his sights on a career using science. He said: “I was hoping for good results but I do not know if I was expecting to get them.

“I worked very hard for them but I’m not really sure what I want to do, but it will be something with science, maybe chemistry.”

Next month he will start at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham studying A-levels in maths, further maths, chemistry, biology and history.

Speaking about his remarkable record of never missing a school day, he said: “I have not had any critical illnesses which has helped, I guess you just have to keep going when you are ill.

“I swim a lot which might help me fight off infections. There’s obviously been days when I have thought about not going to school but with a little bit of determination I’ve have just done the work.”

As well as the core subjects Calvin took further maths, French, Spanish, history and PE for his GCSEs.

The Met Office has issued a new weather warning for heavy rain in Suffolk and north Essex on Sunday.

About one in every 50 reports of fraud resulted in police charging a suspect in Suffolk last year, according to new figures.

Shopping in Ipswich has just got a little sweeter as Hotel Chocolat has opened its doors.

Utility companies will have to apply for a permit to enable them to carry out work on Suffolk roads as part of the scheme being brought in to prevent overly disruptive work.

An Ipswich van driver has been banned from the road after being caught speeding along the A12 on seven occasions in a month.

A teenager has appeared in court accused of attempting to rape a woman in Bury St Edmunds.
