High-achieving Andrew is first in immediate family to go to uni

ANDREW Towers from Great Cornard Upper School and Technology College, near Sudbury, will be heading to Durham University this September.

It will be a proud moment for his family as the 18-year-old, who lives in Monks Eleigh, will be the first person out of his direct relatives to go to university.

The student achieved A*s in chemistry, physics, maths and further maths, and is set to embark on a chemistry degree.

He said: “I was hoping for one or two A*s and I was pretty confident of getting one in maths but I didn’t think my chemistry exam had gone too well.”

Andrew is hoping to go into chemistry research.
