A former student of Grays Convent High School will study medicine at Cambridge University

Thurrock Gazette: Proud head – Sohini Pawar with acting head Dawn Collis Proud head – Sohini Pawar with acting head Dawn Collis

A FORMER pupil at Grays Convent High School has realised a life-long dream and been awarded a place at Cambridge University to study medicine.

Sohini Pawar will be heading to the university in September – and the school’s acting headteacher, Dawn Collis, couldn’t be prouder.

She said it was the culmination of the hard work Sohini had put in while at the school, including work experience with the St John Ambulance and GPs’ surgeries.

Mrs Collis said: “We are so proud of Sohini’s achievements and wish her well for the future. She will be in good company as there are three other Grays Convent pupils already at Cambridge.”

Nice to see a positive story on our young people for once. We'll done that young lady and credit to her former school Grays Convent and her sixth form for facilitating her success.

Rocket 1.....that wasn't funny the first time you said it. Repeating the same ahem 'joke' doesn't make it any more amusing.

I know you said it was a 'joke' at the expense of the previous Head Teacher but she has now left.

I notice in your other posts in Your Thurrock you are an avid multi culturist. I would have thought you would support the Convent, as it is has a high percentage of BEM pupils.

Well done Sohini!

If one student can achieve such success, why can't others? Surly the school has demonstrated it provides the opportunities...or are there other extrinsic factors involved, that contribute to a pupils achievement?

How much of this is actually down to the school or down to her parents and her own ability to learn? this is great news for the individual concerned but I certainly would take the headlines with a pinch of salt, if the school was that good why are other pupils not following suit, how many other ex pupils are achieving this status also I would assume that other schools have their own "success" stories.

Agreed! We had three national swimmers at our school...and didn't even have a pool!

Nevertheless, we still took credit for it...but Romford Killer Whales probably had a 'slight' influence!
