Kezia’s Prescription for Success!
Kezia Thomas (18) from Sittingbourne is just off to Nottingham University to study medicine. However, as one of Highsted Grammar School’s many high-achieving students, she’s been making the most of the time before she goes by helping out at the school. She’s been working mainly as a student receptionist and inspiring new Year 7 pupils, like Sarah Olusola who also wants to become a doctor, as they start off on their own journeys of discovery. But it doesn’t end there: Kezia’s also looking to help past pupils to keep in touch by setting up a Highsted alumni group.
