THE head girl at a local secondary school has won a national competition.
Sarah Jeffery, 18, head girl at Chiltern Hills Academy, in Chartridge Lane, Chesham, has won a national essay writing competition run by the British Sports History Society.
Sarah won a £100 book token along with one year free membership of the society after her essay, on the subject of cricket, beat entries from across the UK.
Sarah said: “I am surprised but thrilled to win this competition. I am looking forward to using the prize money to purchase books for university.”
Sarah will be going to Portsmouth University to study criminal and forensic investigation after a gap year.
Part of her gap year will be spent working for Hyde Heath-based charity Revelation Life in Uganda.
