Maia Drummond, who achieved A* A* A in English Literature, Sociology and History, and will go on to study English at Kings, said, “I cannot believe it! I’m so happy that all this hard work paid off. I want to thank all my teachers, I have really prospered at Ark Putney Academy, especially through the creative side of the school – I played Macbeth and Romeo – but not in the same play!”
