I really enjoy Music at King’s Ely and have achieved Grade 8 in three instruments (piano, clarinet and saxophone). I also do some Ely Scheme and I am an Ely Scheme Pupil Instructor. I used to be in the school Hockey and Netball teams and now do Yoga, but I still play Cricket and am in the 1st Girls Team.

How do you feel King’s Ely and your teachers have helped you to get good grades?

I feel that there is great support for those who struggle or have any queries during lessons. There are plenty of support groups and extra study sessions for all.

What A Levels are you studying and what are your future career ambitions?

I’m going to take Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Latin for A Level and in the future I’d love to be a vet for wild animals or a forensic scientist.

Why King’s Ely Sixth Form? What are the main reasons you want to stay?

I want to stay because I feel that there are so many opportunities for pupils to grow, develop and hone their skills and interests. There are a range of extra-curricular activities, and Music and Sport achievements are considered just as important as academic achievements.
