In which year group did you join King’s?

I joined King’s Ely International in Year 11.

What A-Level grades did you achieve?

Photography – A*, Film Studies – B (being re-marked), Psychology – C.

What University/Institution are you going to and what will you be studying?

I am going to Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in the United States to study Film and Television, as well as a double majoring in Photography.

Are you going to University this year, or are you taking a gap year?

I am starting this September.

What career path do you plan on pursuing?

My plan is to continue pursuing my passion for films and their visuals in the film industry. This industry is so large and widespread, so I am excited to try new things and challenge myself with different tasks. At the same time, I am very much hoping to grow as a photographer, aiming towards concert photography. This has always been a dream for me, which might come true with a lot of hard work and the connections I am hoping to acquire during my time in the US.

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

I participated in photography competitions, I helped the Drama Department with their play booklets and filming, and I joined the Language Leader programme in Year 11. I was a boarder throughout my entire time at King’s, so I participated in numerous activities and experiences that the boarding staff organised. In my last year I also took on the role of Deputy Head of Hill House, which was a very exciting and meaningful experience for me.

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

I have been well supported at King’s, both in school and in the boarding house. Obviously, there have been ups and downs, but there are always people you can talk to and ask for help, both from staff and other students.

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

Most of all, I will miss the great community and the friends that I have made during my three years at King’s. I will also very much miss my lessons, especially photography with Mr Longo, and the great boarding activities that Jemma and Mr and Mrs Jackson organise for Hill House. These three years were definitely a great experience for me, and I am glad that I got the opportunity to join King’s at this point in my life.

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

The teachers and boarding staff are all very unique and warm people, who are always there for their students. Also, King’s offers such a variety of both academic subjects and extra-curricular activities, which can be found in only very few other schools.
