You may have read in the Burton Mail recently about the success of JT pupils Rebecca Kellaghan and Emma Swift.
Rebecca was handed an Excellence Award from the Royal Geographical Society after she achieved full marks for her exams, beating around 4,000 other pupils from across the UK.
And fellow John Taylor pupil Emma Swift scored the second highest results for the country.
Rebecca told the Mail that the secret to achieving the top mark was down to support from her teacher Miss Starkie and hard work. She said:
I worked really hard and Miss Starkie is a great teacher.
