Emma Jones, was Felsted’s joint top performer, securing her dream to read Veterinary Medicine at Emmanuel College, Cambridge with a clean sweep of four A* grades in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. Deputy Head Girl and an Academic and Sports Scholar at Felsted, Emma was a member of the Felsted 1st hockey and cricket teams, recently selected for the Surrey Stars Regional Development Centre as well as playing for Essex Women’s Cricket. Emma turned down the chance to represent Hong Kong last summer, as she hopes one day to break into the England Cricket team. She was also a member of the Felsted media team, Combined Cadet Force and is currently completing her Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Emma achieved a Gold Award in the British Biology Olympiad earlier this year and also completed a voluntary expedition to the Atlas mountains last summer in Morocco with the Round Square Big Build Organisation, building a much needed classroom for women and children to be educated.
“I am delighted with my results and I am so grateful for all the support Felsted has given me to achieve my dreams. I can’t wait to get started at Cambridge and look forward to playing cricket for them also!”
