YEAR 13 leaver, Annabelle Hamilton-Bing, is off to the University of Lincoln to study Conservation of Historical Artefacts after achieving the A Level grades she needed this summer.

We had a quick catch up with Annabelle before she starts her new adventure:

Annabelle, in which year group did you join King’s Ely?

“I joined King’s Ely Junior in Year 4.”

Which University/Institution are you going to and what will you be studying?

“I am going to the University of Lincoln and I am studying Conservation of Historical Artefacts.”

What career path do you hope to pursue?

“I would like to get a job as an archaeological conservator (an on site conservator for archaeological dig sites).”

How do you think King’s Ely prepared you for University life?

“Living in a boarding house will have prepared me a lot I feel, because it has taught me how to be independent and it means I’m used to spending time away from home.”

What will you miss most about King’s Ely and what did you enjoy most during your time here?

“I will miss my friends the most, I have known them for a long time! We are all going to different Universities but hopefully we can all stay in touch.”
