We’re catching up with some of our talented students at Highlands and their spectacular achievements outside of school.  Well done to all of these, it really is fantastic to hear of your successes!

Melissa Byrne  

Melissa Byrne (10RGJ) recently took part in the London Regional Championships and secured her first London Regional Medal in the 200 metre backstroke.

The event took place at the London Aquatics Centre, Stratford, in the 50 metre Olympic pool. It was a full-on, exhausting three days, needing to be at the pool by 7:45am and leaving after the finals at 8pm.

Melissa swims for Enfield Swim Squad and trains up to five times a week, including early mornings. A big congratulations from the staff!

Daniel recently achieved his Shakespeare messenger award at RADA. His three short films have been touring the world at international film festivals and we hope to see them premiered at London’s Frightfest in Leicester Square. He is still enjoying being a member of the youth theatre at Chickenshed and had a part in the school production, Bugsy Malone, for which he received the ‘suffering for his art’ award. He is a current member of Spotlight and has a professional listing as a young performer.
