Exam success

Well done to Jessica James who achieved great results in her GCSE’s this year, her best result being an A* in Maths. Her family were particularly proud that she passed both English Language and English Literature. Due to Jessica attending the Touch, Type, Read and Spell classes held by NELDA, Jessica has gained excellent keyboard skills and used a computer in many of her exams. She has now gone onto Burnley College to study Chemistry, Maths, History and Computing at ‘A’ Level. Jessica’s interest in  books was generated by reading about dinosaurs, dragons, vampires and werewolf’s.  Her favourite books have included ‘Dinosaur Cove’ by Rex Stone, ‘How to Train your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell and Terry Pratchett’s ‘Dragons at Crumbling Castle’. Once Jessica likes an author, she tends to try and read other books by the same author.

One of Jessica’s passions is rugby and she normally plays for Manchester Under 18’s, although she has recently been chosen to play for Cheshire Girls Under 18’s – another fantastic achievement. Her other interests include reading and computer gaming. We wish Jessica lots of luck with her ‘A’ Levels and exam success in the future.
