Five girls from Newcastle High School for Girls were celebrating 10 A*s each today: Tiya Pabury, Hannah Bowen, Anusha Prabhu and Angela Lochmuller from Newcastle and Ramya Narayanan from Durham.
16 year old Anusha is planning to take Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Latin and is considering a career in either scientific research or Medicine.
Anusha said: “It’s been a nerve-wracking time. My results were a shock but I am really delighted and am so looking forward to studying my chosen subjects in more detail at A Level.”
Tiya Pabary is also considering becoming a doctor after having gained some work experience in hospitals and volunteering at St Oswald’s Hospice.
She said: “I am so thankful to be at Newcastle High; the support we get is amazing.”
Hannah Bowen also is looking at a Science career. “I am planning to take A Levels in English
Literature Chemistry, Physics and Maths. It has been a difficult decision as I wanted to balance Science with the Arts. I am considering taking either Science, Philosophy or Law at university.”
Mrs French said: ”Science is one of our strengths at Newcastle High. We have large numbers of girls taking Science subjects at A Level and many of the girls from our school go on to exciting careers not only in Medicine, but research, engineering and robotics for instance.
