Teesside High School sisters reflect on examination success

Thursday 15 August 2019 | By Samantha Hockney

Teesside High School student Molly picked up her A-level results today, exactly two years to the day that her sister Libby learnt of her A-level fate.

Molly was delighted to achieve an impressive A*A*A in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and successfully secure a place at her chosen university.

She will now follow in her sister’s footsteps to read Medicine at Newcastle University.

The girls have achieved a combined 21 A*-A grades at GCSE and now a staggering 6 A*-A grades at A-level.

Libby said: “I said two years ago that Molly would achieve great things at THS Sixth Form and I am so pleased her hard work has paid off. The support we have both received from the school has been incredible and it has undoubtedly helped get us where we are today.”

Molly said: “Newcastle was always my first choice university; it has an excellent reputation for Medicine and it helps that my sister is a student there, too. I can’t wait to start my studies and be one step closer to achieving my dream.”

Jane Bird, Head of THS Sixth Form, said: “Every student who has applied to study Medicine from Teesside High School in the last five years has been successful and we could not be more proud to see Molly continue this excellent trend today.

“Both Libby and Molly have been assets to Teesside High. They have shown themselves to be conscientious and committed students who take advantage of every opportunity put their way. They both deserve every success.”
