Subjects Studied:

In 2012 I gained A*AA in English Literature, Biology and Geology. I also gained Advance Subsidiary qualifications in Spanish and General Studies.

Why King Edward’s?

It is considered one of the best sixth form colleges in the country. Its record of achieving high results provided the greatest attraction for me.

What are your favourite subjects?

Geology & Spanish. The tutors use a wide variety of interactive teaching methods, their lessons are relaxed yet incredibly productive, and they help develop you as a person by teaching much more than just the skills needed to pass the exams. I especially enjoyed by time in the Lake District and Snowdonia National Park, learning about the unique geology of these areas by looking at the ground under my feet!

Outside lessons, what did you most enjoy?

I loved the English extension classes and visiting The Globe theatre in London. Japanese classes that I chose to also join, and the Hockey and Volley ball clubs. I also enjoyed gaining my Community Sports Leadership Award whilst at college.

Where next?

I think I would like to work with children but have not made my mind up yet. During my time at college I gained a College Bursary Award to travel to Peru and work with children in the poor and remote mountain villages. By the time I return I hope to have my career goals finally sorted!

How do you think coming to King Edward’s has helped you most?

King Edward’s has really helped me to develop my skills as an independent learner in an environment where support is always available and readily given.

What words of advice would you offer new students about to start at the college?

Don’t worry if you don’t know anyone else joining the college, lots of students know nobody on day one and lots by the end of the first week. It’s such a relaxed and friendly environment that you will soon get into the swing of things and make new friends.
