Kerstin Deakin is an 18 year old student going to study Business and Accounting at York University. Since studying at NHSG since Reception, she has gone on to achieve an A*, an A and a B in Maths, Economics and Business. However, before she heads off to University, she is taking a gap year where she will be horse riding in Portugal for two months, doing a ski season and then hopefully heading to Camp America once she has passed the interview process. Kerstin said: “I haven’t thought about what I want to do after University, I’m just really hoping something comes along! I can’t wait for my fun-filled gap year before I start but will certainly miss all my friends and family. I’m going to celebrate with them all tonight with dinner and a few drinks.”
18-year-old Annabelle Hulls, from Hexham, has been a student at NHSG since year 6. She is very happy with her results after achieving two As and a B in French, German and Geography. Annabelle said: “I am going to study Languages and Business at Nottingham University, the course allowed me to do two languages, which really is my passion. Eventually I would like to go into Accounting, but do it abroad somewhere like Paris or Rome.
“I will miss not having to take notes in school, which does worry me! But I can’t wait to do what I love.”
Annabelle took part in hockey and tennis and is hoping to carry that on to university. After already celebrating in Croatia with her friends and Paris with her family, she is going to continue that tonight with dinner and a party tonight with her friends.
18-year-old Anna Harding from Cleadon, was today celebrating after picking up an A* in Economics and 2 A grades in Spanish and Maths. Speaking today, she said: “I am very happy and really relieved. I’ll now be going to LSE to study Accounting and Finance, which I think will give me a really strong grounding in business skills. I’ve made lots of lovely friends here at Newcastle High and will be sad to leave as this school has just given me so much confidence. I’m excited for the future though.”
