Straight A students
THREE talented sisters are celebrating after the hard work preparing for university, A-level and GCSE exams paid off.
Megan, Courtney and Roxy Orloff have all had academic success this summer.
Senior sibling Megan, who left St Helen’s School, in Eastbury Road, Northwood, in 2011, started the good times rolling with a first-class honours degree in aeronautical engineering from the University of Sheffield.
She plans to stay in the city to teach maths, having been awarded a scholarship by the Institute of Mathematics.
Next came Courtney’s A-level results – an A* in biology and A grades in maths and chemistry.
She hopes to follow in Megan’s footsteps and will be studying dentistry at the Sheffield.
So, the pressure was on for youngest Orloff sister, Roxy, but there were tears of joy as she totted up eight A*s and three A grades in her GCSEs.
Not content with being star students academically while at St Helen’s, the girls also helped to raise more than £25,000 for the Help for Heroes charity.
The Northwood teens have also been involved in the RAF section of the school’s Combined Cadet Force.
Mr and Mrs Orloff said of their daughters’ success: “St Helen’s has provided the opportunity for all of our children to develop academically, emotionally and socially.
“They have had the chance to give something back to their school and local communities while learning and having fun.”
