KING’S Ely Sixth Form leaver, Kieran Healy-McAdam, is off to Swansea University after achieving the A Level results he needed.
Kieran 19, achieved an A* in History, an A in Geography and an A in Religious Studies. His chosen degree is Law and he hopes to become a Barrister.
Kieran joined King’s Ely Acremont Pre-Prep in Year 1.
Speaking about his time at King’s, Kieran, who was awarded an Academic Scholarship to study at Swansea, said: “I was Deputy Head of Osmond House and a House Prefect. I am a keen Rower and was Vice Captain of Boats, although they did not see much of me in my final year due to me studying for my A Levels. Throughout my time at King’s, I was involved in Inter-House Debating, both taking part and coaching the Junior House Debating Squad. I am going to miss my friends and the Sixth Form Socials.”
Speaking about the teaching at King’s, Kieran said: “I have been extremely well supported by all my teachers and in particular, Mrs Farley in Learning Support, who really helped keep me on course in the Sixth Form. The teachers really get to know you, find out what you are good at and then cultivate that within you.
“In Year 10, I was told that I should take the Religious Studies A Level as I really had a grasp of the subject, and I laughed as I had no intention of studying Philosophy; the teacher was proved right in the end. I also enjoyed the fact that I was given significantly more autonomy and responsibility as I went through the years at King’s.”
Congratulations Kieran, good luck in Swansea and keep in touch!
