Zuva shines bright­est as Daisy aims for the stars

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Head Speaks Out -

Zuva Denga was the star per­former at Queen El­iz­a­beth’s Gram­mar School in Faver­sham, pick­ing up the equiv­a­lent of 14 A*s.

She won’t, how­ever, be aim­ing as high, lit­er­ally, as fel­low pupil Daisy Cleary, who plans to study space ex­plo­ration af­ter bag­ging six top grades.

Daisy, who turns 16 to­day (Thurs­day), said: “There was a lot of worry as I didn’t know what to ex­pect, but I’m so pleased.”

As­pir­ing en­gi­neer Zoe Hat­ton, who achieved eight top grades, added: “A lot of re­vi­sion has paid off and I can’t re­ally com­plain about the new for­mat now.”

Head teacher David An­der­son said: “At a time of ex­cep­tional change to ex­am­i­na­tions and un­prece­dented ex­ter­nal in­ter­fer­ence, it is so good to see that stu­dents at QE have se­cured results which com­pare so well to their pre­de­ces­sors and, most im­por­tantly, re­ward them for their hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion.”

Else­where in the town, pupils at Abbey School cel­e­brated af­ter months of hard work.

Star trio Katie Collins, Molly Stemp and Pa­trick Lyle-con­don all re­ceived 11 grades from A* to B, and Tal­lu­lah Streek se­cured 12 at A* to C.

Head teacher Ca­trin Wood­end said: “I am, as al­ways, ex­cep­tion­ally proud of all of our stu­dents who have worked so hard.”
