Jenny Jiang is in London, studying Chemistry, having chosen Imperial College over an unconditional offer from UC Davies in California.

Also studying Chemistry is Elena Cho, who despite achieving grades that would have afforded her a place at some of the UKs best universities in the field (Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh), chose instead to continue her studies at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, one of the highest ranked US Universities for sciences.

Elena was also one of our stand out performances at A-level, graduating with a total of 5 A Levels with the following grades: A*, AA, BB

Other notable university destinations include Maiko Tamura (ABA at A-Level) who is at Sheffield studying finance and accounting; Sammy Lee who is at Rice on their architecture programme and Tanya Valdez who is studying Psychology at Ateneo de Manila University, a top five university in her home country of the Philippines.

Tanya too deserves to be honoured as one of our highest achieving graduates, having achieved an A* and two A Grades.

Other notable graduates were Sophie Thomason whose ABC was more than enough to see her to Nottingham University (Malaysia Campus) where she is reading Environmental Sciences; and Stephen Zhang who is at the University of Toronto reading Economics.
