Outgoing Head Girl at Vale of York Academy, Holly Cairns, has swept the board today as she picks up her GCSE results.
16-year old Holly has achieved an incredible nine Grade 9s as well as a Grade 8, an A* and an A. She also received a Grade A in her A Level Maths which she collected last week and a Grade A in AS Level Maths last summer.
Holly said “I’m a little bit in shock but over the moon! I didn’t think I could beat the feeling of getting my A and AS Level results, but today wins, hands down! I feel very lucky to have been a part of Vale of York Academy. The staff there have supported me all the way through my studies so I’d like to say a huge thank you to them all.”
Helen Dowds, Principal at Vale of York Academy said “We’re delighted for Holly, this is a truly outstanding achievement. She has worked incredibly hard, applied herself with enthusiasm and resilience and has been a delight to teach.
“As our outgoing Head Girl, Holly has shown real dedication to the school and her peers this year and I’m sure she has a very bright future ahead of her. We’re very proud of her and wish her well with her future studies!”
Holly is now going on to Archbishop Holgate’s School Sixth Form where she will take A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Further Maths with the aim of then going on to study Medicine at university.
