She said: “I’m really happy with my results because it has been quite difficult and relentless. The teachers have supported us and have checked in with us a lot during the lockdowns.”

During her time at Westholme, Lucy has also played for her school hockey and netball teams, achieved a grade 6 at clarinet and achieved a certificate in public speaking to help develop skills for life.
