Do you feel that you have been well supported at King’s?

Very much so. I have always felt supported and accommodated by my teachers and tutors, who have helped me countless times with both academic, social, and personal challenges throughout my school career. I have also been supported always by my friends, many of whom I am sure I will remain close with for many years to come.

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

What I will miss most about King’s is the warm and vibrant community created by both staff and students, who for me, have really brought my school experience to life, and have made it all the richer. The passion for learning and for each individual in my teachers was clear to me in all of my subjects, which has made me feel very privileged to have been educated at King’s.

In what ways do you think King’s is unique or special compared to other schools?

For me, being a History student, I have always been fascinated by the rich history of Ely and the buildings themselves, which seem to exude from the very walls of the school. From the beautiful 15th century Old Palace, to the castle-like Porta Library and often raucous Monastic Barn. My favourite building was of course the stunning Norman Cathedral, where I enjoyed getting to know the countless unique and interesting features, as I sat through many an end of term or prizegiving service!
