YEAR 13 leaver, Clarence Law, is off to the University of Kent after achieving the A Level grades he needed this summer.
We had a quick catch-up with Clarence before he starts his new adventure:
Clarence, in which year group did you join King’s Ely?
“I joined King’s Ely Acremont in Year 1.”
Which University/Institution are you going to and what will you be studying?
“I will be going to the University of Kent to study Psychology with a placement year.”
What career path do you hope to pursue?
“I am planning on working as a clinical psychologist or becoming a therapist, however my choice is not final and may change during my time in University.”
How do you think King’s Ely prepared you for University life?
“During Sixth Form, we enjoyed many talks and lectures from different visitors about University life and what to expect. King’s also gave us the opportunity to listen to subject-specific lectures, such as in psychology where we were able to partake in a study from the University of Holloway and were given the opportunity to listen to a speaker from the Channel 4 programme, ‘What makes a Murderer?’ Despite long-distance learning recently, the school was still able to provide University-related work, such as writing a dissertation, giving me a foundation on what to expect when I’m doing University work.”
What will you miss most about King’s Ely and what did you enjoy most during your time here?
“I was at King’s for so long so there will be lots of things I will miss but if I had to choose two things it would be the House Music Competition and the school’s music shows. I enjoyed playing in Concert Band from Year 10 as we got to perform a variety of genres, including jazz and classical, and all the way to movie music. The school’s Inter-House Competition always provided a lively atmosphere and a sense of healthy rivalry between Houses. The Sixth Form Socials organised for us were great, the lessons were well structured and the teachers executed them well. I will very much miss my time at King’s.”
