Raaheel Abdulhadi Varnham, of Queen Elizabeth High School Carmarthen, is profoundly deaf. She has manged some fantastic GCSE results and has made her family proud with 2A*s, 5As, an M2, and a B. She is a part of the school’s Canolfan Elfed department, which provides pupils who need it with specialist help.
With her hard work, and help from the school, Raheel has been able to excel in her studies and make her family proud. Her mother who was so pleased she was crying, said: “We are so proud, she’s done incredibly, not just well. “I can’t believe it.” Raaheel said: “I want to do A levels here, and then go on to university to study medicine, I’m very pleased.” Mr Pete Spencer, the head teacher of the school, said: “She’s done really, really well, and we’re very proud of her. "I wish to congratulate our pupils on their excellent results. "This year group has been highly motivated, dedicated and hardworking and thoroughly deserve this success. "These excellent improvements have been achieved by the whole school community working together and in particular the staff’s willingness to go the extra mile. "We are looking forward to continuing to work with these talented students in the sixth form and further supporting their development. "We have made significant improvement on last year’s results; against a backdrop of a gloomy national picture this makes our pupils’ performance even more impressive."
The pupils registered for sixth form immediately after picking up their results.
