KING’S Ely Sixth Form leaver, David Harris, is off to the University of St Andrews after achieving the A Level results he needed.

David, 18, achieved four A* grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. His chosen degree is Mathematics.

David, who joined King’s Ely Junior in Year 7, said: “I’m very happy with my results; it feels like all my hard work has paid off. I hope to pursue a STEM related career after University, perhaps in Engineering. I’ve always loved Maths so I am looking forward to my degree. I’ve taken part in lots of national Maths competitions and challenges during my time at King’s, which have been great experiences.”

David has also been an avid member of the King’s Ely Golf Team and has represented the school in several golf competitions over the years.

He said: “I really enjoy my golf and plan to play plenty of it at St Andrews. The support I have received throughout my time at King’s has been brilliant, especially so during the lockdowns. What makes King’s special is that each student is treated as an individual person, something I’m not sure happens in every school.”

David’s mum, Jayne, added: “It’s going to be an exciting new chapter for David but also mixed emotions for us all as he leaves King’s. He’s been so well supported; we all have been as a family. King’s treats every student as an individual, which is something we have and always will love about the school.”

Congratulations David, good luck at St Andrews and keep in touch!
