Imperial Mathematician Calculates Formula to Success


Calculating the perfect score in her A-Level results is Talbot Heath Sixth Form student Kathryn Potten, having secured a place at Imperial College, London to study Mathematics. She will be following in the footsteps of many prestigious alumni such as Professor Frances Ashcroft, who was awarded a damehood earlier this year for her outstanding contribution to science. Kathryn attained four A* grades in Mathematics, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics alongside an A* for her EPQ. Megan Richards also achieved a winning formula with her three A* grades in Mathematics, Further Maths and Chemistry with an A in Physics and A* for her EPQ. Pursuing all creatures great and small at Cambridge is Katie Kirk, whose A* in Mathematics and Chemistry, and A in Biology has secured her place to study Veterinary Science. The Rothesay Road school achieved 78 percent A*-B grades, with 55 percent A*- A and 22 percent A*, making it yet another excellent year for Talbot Heath as it remains the number one performing school for girls in Bournemouth and Poole. Other star struck students were Florence Hockey who attained three A* grades in Geography, Biology and Chemistry, and fellow student Lucy Scott gained A* grades for English Literature and French with an A in Spanish. Angharad Holloway said, 'The girls have worked tremendously hard to achieve these superb results with the support of their dedicated teachers. They have bright and exciting futures ahead of them.'
