A West Norfolk student has had two reasons to celebrate.
Emily Crowson, who studies at Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech, got her GCSE results and is also just back from a charity trip to Kenya.
The 16-year-old raised £4000 to help support an African community where she helped them build hutns to live in.
She said: “I had an amazing time. The trip was with Camps International and was really good. I would like to travel again,” she said, adding she had seen amazing wildlife including lions and giraffes during her trip.
Principal Richard Scott said he was incredibly proud of Emily who had put a huge amount of effort into both her school work and her charity fundraising to fund the trip.
“It is a huge credit to Emily, who had to wait an extra year for her expedition because of Covid, but persevered and achieved her goal of helping others while visiting an amazing country. We are really pleased she is staying with us for her A Levels and fully support her ambition to become a paramedic.”
Emily’s GCSE success meant she was able to secure her place at the Academy Sixth Form to study for her A Levels.
