Highsted Students Encouraged to Follow their Dreams
On Wednesday 12 December, Highsted Grammar School’s staff, students, governors, parents and representatives from the local community came together to celebrate the outstanding success of the school’s GCSE and A-level results. Headteacher, Anne Kelly gave her personal congratulations on the school achieving the top results in Swale.
Students received awards ranging from outstanding achievement, progress and effort; to particular subject recognition such as business, sport, science and art; as well as awards for positive contributions to the local community. This year also saw the introduction of the ‘Highsted Character Award’ given to a student who has best demonstrated the values and virtues of the typical Highsted student.
The evening included fantastic musical performances from Highsted students including: Vacation by Florist – performed by Callum R on the guitar, and Sonata in A by Franck – performed by Elena J on the violin.
The guest speaker this year was Anna Walker, a pilot and flying instructor. She inspired and encouraged students, telling them about the importance of being yourself and never fearing to follow your dreams. She went on to describe the influence of powerful and talented women in her life and how she was never treated differently because of her gender, despite growing up in a large family of brothers. She finished by speaking about the vast world of opportunities open to women today and shared her confidence that Highsted students would all find their own path.
