Zuva shines brightest as Daisy aims for the stars
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.”
