High family fives all round for Hetty

IT was high fives all round from her brothers and sisters for student Hetty Simenacz as she received a fantastic set of GCSE grades.

One of a family of five siblings who have all attended Ripon Grammar School, the 16-year-old, who is number four in the pecking order, achieved six 9s, two 8s, one 6 and two 7s.

The aspiring dentist has played netball and hockey for her county and is also a talented musician, currently working towards her Grade 8 cornet music exam while fitting in a part-time job with a local pizza takeaway.

Her eldest brother Oliver has just completed his economics degree while twins George and Millie have finished their second years at university, studying international relations and medicine respectively. Youngest sibling Lucy, currently in Year 10 at RGS, continues the family tradition.

"I really enjoy being at RGS," adds Hetty.
