One of the top ten ‘Students of the Year’ in the annual RARE Awards - posted 4th Sep

The school was delighted to hear the news during the Summer Holiday break that one of our ex-students, Whitney from the class of 2016 has been given the accolade of being one of the top ten ‘Students of the Year’ in the annual RARE Awards held in the Houses of Parliament. This is in recognition of the exceptional academic success and vocational work, Whitney has achieved as she graduates this year from the University of Bristol with a first class honours degree in Biology. Whitney during her 7 years at Barking Abbey was never afraid to push the boundaries of her abilities and any obstacles in her path, were quickly brushed aside because of her strong inner resilience and will to succeed. Her motivation resulted in her accruing some of the most impressive A level results of her 6th form cohort affording her the opportunity to be the first in her family to attend university.
