Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Runs And Runner Beans -

TOW­ERS SCHOOL At Tow­ers School and Sixth Form Cen­tre sev­eral pupils gained A* and A grades in all sub­jects and 49% achieved C or above in English and maths.

There was a dou­ble cel­e­bra­tion at the Groves house­hold in Sin­gle­ton as twins Am­ber and Jade got top marks.

Am­ber gained A*s in so­ci­ol­ogy and RE and will study those sub­jects and oth­ers at High­worth Gram­mar School from Septem­ber while Jade, who got an A* in art and A for English and tex­tiles, is off to the Univer­sity for the Cre­ative Arts.

It will be the first time the girls have been ed­u­cated sep­a­rately. Am­ber said: “It will be weird.” Reece Buckle, also from Sin­gle­ton, achieved five A* and five A grades and is off to High­worth with the intention of study­ing medicine or bio­med­i­cal sci­ence at univer­sity.

He said: “I wasn’t ex­pect­ing th­ese grades so it was a sur­prise. I sat down and worked out what I’d got be­fore cel­e­brat­ing.”

Friends Maddy Pink from Ash­ford and Chloe Daw­son of Sin­gle- ton were cel­e­brat­ing af­ter achiev­ing mul­ti­ple A grades.

Maddy, who also got an A* in art, said: “I was re­ally scared open­ing my re­sults but I’m re­ally happy. With th­ese grades I’ve got into High­worth but I think I want to stay at Tow­ers.”

Head teacher Richard Bill- ings said: “We were par­tic­u­larly de­lighted with our English re­sults as two thirds of the year were suc­cess­ful in at­tain­ing a C or above. The com­mit­ment, fo­cus and hard work of staff and stu­dents through­out the year has paid off. We are very proud of their ac­com­plish­ments.”
