What else did you participate in during your time at King’s?

I was a Prefect during my final year at school, as well as Head of Withburga House. I have been involved in lots of different areas of the school during my time at King’s, especially with Music, where I have played in Concert Band, Jazz Band and Orchestra, and sung in both the Chapel and Chamber Choirs. I have also enjoyed playing Cricket for the school since I joined, which for the last few years, has been as part of the school’s 1st XI Girls’ Team. I have taken part in Rowing and Hockey too. This year, I was Captain of the 2nd XI Hockey Team – a group of girls who I was so lucky to work and play with. I did also once take part in Drama productions too, with my first ever King’s production being ‘Whistle Down the Wind’, in which I played the daughter of one of the lead characters. I also starred as Bombalurina in the 2017 production of ‘Cats’!

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

Not only have my teachers done an incredible job of supporting me through my academic journey at King’s, with their dedication to everyone’s individual learning having made such an immense difference, but they have also been like friends to me, and so many others throughout my time. This, when combined with the support of my peers and family, has contributed to making my journey so special, and one that I wish I could go back and experience again.

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

I will miss the sense of community and family that is shared between absolutely everyone at the school, which I have managed to reap the benefits of, by getting involved with lots of different areas of school life. There are countless individuals who have helped me have the most incredible time in everything that I have done over the past nine years. For me, this year’s ‘Festival of Music and Dance’ epitomised the spirit of King’s, as it showed how we can all come together and make something truly wonderful.

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

I think King’s Ely’s uniqueness stems greatly from its community that I have previously described. I fully believe that in order to succeed, both academically and personally during your time at school, it is so important to feel supported by everyone around you, which I certainly have done.
