Straight A stu­dents

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Zoe Drewett zoe.drewett@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

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.”
