A Kent school has said a 16-year-old student who died when she was hit by a car while walking with her boyfriend wanted to study medicine at university.

Zoe Georgiou, a pupil at Invicta Grammar School in Maidstone, was crossing the B2163 Heath Road in Coxheath when the crash happened.

She died at the scene of the accident at about 18:00 GMT on Saturday.

Head teacher Julie Derrick said Zoe was a bright, happy and creative sixth from student with a gentle personality.

'Caring nature'

She was studying AS levels in psychology, biology, chemistry and English and had 11 GCSEs.

"She had expressed an interest in studying medicine at university and pursuing a medical career, which would have undoubtedly suited Zoe's caring nature," said Mrs Derrick.

"We are devastated to have lost such a lovely student in such tragic circumstances.

"Our thoughts are very much with Zoe's family at this very sad time."
