High-flying scholars inspire younger pupils

Published on 19/10/18

Two former Great Yarmouth Charter Academy pupils who won scholarships to a prestigious sixth form have inspired pupils at their old school to aim high.

Phoebe Harvey and Keeley Roe won 100% paid scholarships to the independent Gresham’s sixth form in Holt, north Norfolk after achieving exceptional GCSE results in summer 2018, with five of the new top grade 9s between them.

They returned to Charter on Tuesday, October 16 to deliver an assembly to current pupils, sharing their journey and encouraging them to have the highest academic aspirations.

Stressing the importance of working hard and revising, the pair also shared their sixth form interview tips, such as using good eye contact and a firm handshake to show confidence.

Charter vice principal Darren Hollingsworth said: “These girls are beyond outstanding, and all the Charter staff are overwhelmingly proud of them.

“They have demonstrated to our pupils that there is no limit to what they can achieve with hard work and commitment.”
