Rebecca Hankin, from Milton Keynes, is celebrating after achieving First Class Honours in her degree.
Rebecca, a former student at Shenley Brook End School, has just completed her degree in Primary Initial Teacher Education at the University of Worcester.
The 21-year-old said: “I still can't quite believe it; I knew it was possible but I wasn't convinced I'd achieve it. To graduate with a First Class Honours is a dream come true.”
Rebecca will start a job as a Year 4 teacher in September at Priory Rise School in Tattenhoe Park.
