Bright World has received some excellent feedback on how our students have performed at partner school, St Mary’s School Cambridge. The school are very proud of alumni Rachel, Peng and Pui Lam (Jolie) and have expressed that it has been a real pleasure to have them in their school community after graduating in 2016.
“We will miss all the girls, but we will ensure that with our fantastic Alumni network now in place, we will keep in regular contact with them and we will follow them through the next stages of their lives.” Miss T McCrea, International Admissions Officer
Rachel has gained a fantastic set of GCSE results, achieving seven A* grades in Geography, Religious Studies, Spanish, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics and four A grades in Art, Statistics, Additional Mathematics and Chinese.
Rachel’s housemistress commented on her last school report that Rachel is very thoughtful and considerate, especially with her peers. Rachel worked very hard, and managed her time extremely effectively; she remained very focused and calm during the mock examinations. Rachel has a lot to offer her peers, so we hope to see her develop in confidence expressing herself and flourish in the future.
Rachel’s tutor also thought that she was a quiet, thoughtful and conscientious member of the form group who had contributed to form group activities including the Fun Run and other charity fundraising. She participated in the annual Boarder’s Concert and she also successfully completed the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
Peng also achieved some brilliant GCSE results, achieving nine A* grades in Geography, Computing, Music, Religious Studies, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Statistics, one A grade in Additional Mathematics and one B grade in English Language.
The Headmistress commended her on her last school report for the strong projections and mock GCSE examination results; particularly pleasing were her reports in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. We am delighted that Peng was been awarded Sixth Form Academic and Music Scholarships and thank her for her hard work as the accompanist for Cantore.
Her form tutor commented that Peng is a quiet, conscientious and reliable member of the form who joined in form group activities. She contributed to whole school activities as the accompanist for Cantore - a role that she took up last autumn which she regularly attended rehearsals. She has also played piano in masses and assemblies.
Jolie (Pui Lam) Lo:
Jolie has gained a place at Durham University to study Mathematics after achieving two A grades in Chinese and Mathematics, one B grade in Further Mathematics and one C grade in History.
The Headmistress recently commented on her last school report that Jolie had an excellent Upper Sixth year. The school thanks her for all her help with the Boarders’ Concert including the striking poster and ticket design. As a STEM Scholar, Jolie has done herself and her school proud; and we have recognised the substantial effort that she has made in her Upper Sixth studies.
Jolie’s Housemistress also reported that Jolie is a pleasure to have in boarding. She is very hard working and maintained good focus and organisation in her academic work. She as very well-liked by her peers and though quiet, her lovely character is appreciated across the house.
Jolie’s form tutor also commented that she has a charming personality and had blossomed in the tutor group. She was fully integrated into the wider life of the school and acquired many skills associated with a successful undergraduate.
“It has been a pleasure hearing about her successes with her university applications. I wish her luck in the future and look forward to learning about her successes next year and in the years to come.” Miss T McCrea, International Admissions Officer
