Maria Campbell, 17, from Ely.
Which year group did you join King’s Ely?
I joined King’s Ely in Year 5 at King’s Ely Junior.
What A Levels are you studying and what are your future career ambitions?
I am currently studying History, French and Latin. In terms of shorter term goals, I would like to go to Durham University to study History and French, but I am afraid I have not got any ideas for after that!
What extra-curricular activities do you enjoy here?
I sing as a chorister in Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir and I am in various other musical ensembles, such as concert band and orchestra. I have enjoyed being in Drama productions and playing for Sports teams in the past too.
How do you feel to have been selected as Head of School?
I feel very lucky to have been selected to be Head Girl out of such a strong group of candidates.
What are you looking forward to most during your time as Head of School, and what, if anything, are you nervous about?
Although I am a bit nervous about some of the speeches, I am very much looking forward to being at the head of such a strong community.
What do you hope to achieve most during your time as Head of School?
I hope to be able to take the advice of younger students and to improve anything I can.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Probably time travel!
Name three things you would want with you if stranded on a desert island for a week.
A radio, a hammock and probably some company.
