Tabitha Jones

Four Star Tabitha

tab-2After Oratory Prep School, 18 year old Tabitha Jones attended Queen Anne’s Caversham where she achieved an amazing four A* at A level! Her subjects were biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. She has won a place on a four year degree course at Mansfield College, Oxford to read Materials Science, a combination of chemistry, physics and engineering. She had previously gained ten A*at GCSE level and tells me she has always been science oriented.

Living in Wyfold with her parents and younger brother, Tabitha is clearly an all rounder having been Head Girl at Queen Anne’s and in the first team representing her school at lacrosse. She played the clarinet to Grade 6 and was awarded the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award after going on an expedition and also fundraising for the Sue Ryder Hospice.

Tabitha tells me she has enjoyed her time at Queen Anne’s. She took part in a public speaking competition in 2011 that involved travelling to Canada to compete against young people from other English speaking countries and, as Head Girl, has been involved with talking to prospective parents about her school at Open Days and taking part in Senior Management Team meetings with the Head and other staff. In her free time Tabitha enjoys reading comedy, seeing her friends and going to the cinema.

As for the future Tabitha is uncertain what direction she will take; possibly doing a PhD, research, going into industry or teaching. Whatever she decides, on past results it looks as if she will have a promising career ahead of her.
