This boy failed his exams but received a very unexpected letter from his teacher


Eleven-year-old Ben Twist is a student at Lansbury Bridge School & Sports College who recently sat his exams. Despite his best efforts, Ben would unfortunately fail these tests as his results did not hit the requirements to pass.

What would follow was a truly heart-warming gesture that brought Ben’s mother to tears, along with several thousands of Twitter users who saw the letter after it went viral. The teacher was under no obligations to send out such a letter, and the act of kindness has rightfully been applauded.

Take a look at the letter and see for yourself!

Ben had some great words to say about the letter too, ’This letter is amazing!’


We at TheMindCircle know that Ben must feel very lucky to be at a school with such caring teachers, and we are sure that they feel very lucky to have him as a student!
