Top marks for Gad’s ‘A’ star pupils

Classmates Ellie Golson and Robert Hunt achieved twenty A* and A grades between them when they collected their results from school yesterday.

Ellie, 16, from Northfleet, gained A*s and As in all twelve of her GCSEs while Robert, also 16 and from Greenhithe, racked up eight A*s and As.

Ellie is going on to study A-level maths, economics, geography and biology at Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School, Rochester and strives to run her own business one day.

During her time at Gad’s she has been a prefect, a careers ambassador and has been awarded for achievements in music and academic excellence.

Talented musician Robert, who has been at Gad’s since he was three and was the school’s Assistant Director of Music as well as a scholar, goes on to sixth-form at Dartford Grammar School for Girls where he will study A-level maths, music, chemistry and biology, as well as taking further maths in his own time.

Headmaster David Craggs said: “Ellie and Robert are testament to what you can realise with hard work and determination and I know both are destined for great things in the years ahead.

“They have been a delight to teach and I am very proud of what they have accomplished during their time at Gad’s.

“Once again, our year 11 students have achieved commendable GCSE results and I am grateful to them for their commitment to learning and indeed our teachers for their dedication in helping them achieve some great results.

“Many of our children go on to study at local grammar schools and I wish them the best of luck and look forward to hearing about their future successes.”
