Sarah achieved an impressive 5 A’s in Higher English, Higher Spanish, Higher French, Higher Art and Higher Business Management. Sarah has attended Albyn since Lower 1 and has recently been appointed as a Senior Prefect.
Sarah told us how she coped during lockdown and the support she received throughout:
“It was difficult, but the school did a great job keeping us enthused and involved by organising lots of different activities and engaging lessons. With our higher exams, the support we had in lockdown with online learning was helpful and it still felt like we were learning at home.”
Giving advice to her peers on the exam process, Sarah said:
“Don’t think it is the end of the world if you are stressed out about something – there are so many different ways to help yourself. When you don’t understand something, don’t be afraid to ask. Staff are there to help and support you. Try not to stress yourself out too much because if you do, you won’t get the results you desire.”
Senior Deputy Head, David Starbuck, says “Sarah’s excellent mindset and her willingness to push herself towards achieving her very best is represented not only by her Higher results, but by the way she conducts and expresses herself. Albyn has helped to shape her to be the thoughtful and determined person she is, and it is exciting to see pupils such as Sarah achieve so well in so many ways.”
