A teenager who has been battling a mystery illness has managed to secure three qualifications in diverse subjects.
Max Bradley, who is in year nine and attends the King Alfred School in Highbridge, has been congratulated by headteacher Denise Hurr for his determination.
He has just been awarded his fist dan black belt in taekwondo.
That success comes on the back of a pass on the Royal Naval Cadet physical training instructor course, and a qualification as an open water scuba diver.
Ms Hurr said: “Well done to Max for these excellent achievements – especially as he was also struggling with an illness for such a long period. This was a wonderful show of talent and determination.”
Max’s mum Sarah added: “We would like to thank the school for the support they gave Max with his studies from home to ensure his education wasn’t adversely impacted.”
