Three students from Saffron Walden County High School were celebrating this morning (August 13) after achieving top marks in their A-levels.
Emily Dan, Rebecca Tomlinson, and Ellen Paterson were each awarded four A* grades and will begin university life this autumn.
Emily, who took art, maths, biology and an extended project (ECQ) on architecture, will attend Kings College, Cambridge to study architecture this October.
She said: “I’m really, really pleased and looking forward to getting started at Cambridge.”
Emily’s mum, Gillian, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted for her. She’s worked really hard and deserved her grades.”
