Jenny was one of our twelve students who achieved 5 grade As at A level this summer since the results were published. We have now been informed of her performance in her A level Physics exam. She scored 600 marks out of a possible 600 a perfect score.

Jenny and her parents are to be invited to London for a prize giving and award ceremony in November hosted by the Edexcel (Salters Horners) exam board. Jenny has been an exceptional student during her time at Holy Cross and someone who has contributed much to the college in the two years she has been here. We wish her every success at Cambridge and in the future.
