A TEENAGER from Sheffield who passed a staggering 27 GCSEs with top grades is due to return to his old school today (Thursday) – where an award is to be named after him.
Adam Bradford, aged 19, moved from Westfield Sports College to The Grove School in Newark just months before his final exams. And despite enduring hours of commuting each day Adam, from Waterthorpe, collected an incredible clutch of 27 top grade GCSEs.
Now The Grove School has created the ADAM Award to be presented to a student with Aspiration, Determination and Motivation and who has Achieved.
Adam, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, said: “I believe anyone can succeed despite what is in their way and I aim to prove that through my story.”
After leaving schoo,l Adam studied A-levels at Sheffield College, before launching his own IT business with the support of Levi Roots, the Reggae Reggae Sauce entrepreneur.
He also pitched his business ideas to entrepreneur Peter Jones, and is now a national ambassador for Jones’ enterprise academy.
