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

Rowing – I was active with the Boat Club at King’s for six years, and I can say with confidence that it was on the river that I had some of my best and most memorable experiences, as well as made some of my closest friends.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – In the Sixth Form, I took part in DofE Gold, learning many important life skills, such as how to approach new and unfamiliar situations.

Drama Productions – Since joining King’s, I have been involved in many of the theatre productions, and in the last six years I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the student-led backstage team, who help to ensure that the productions run smoothly.

Da Vinci Club – In the last few years, I have attended Da Vinci Club, which is one of the after-school enrichment options which the Science Department offers. I found it really improved my critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and it was invaluable in preparing me for university interviews.

Scholar – I was lucky enough to be a King’s Scholar, as well as a STEM and Sports Scholar. All of these have provided me with amazing opportunities, such as building a go-kart and of course taking part in the annual Hoop Trundle!

Prefect/Deputy Head of School – In my last year, I was Deputy Head of School. This was a great opportunity to give back to the school community as a student who had come all the way through King’s from Year 3.

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

I feel that I have been extremely well supported at King’s. The teachers really take the time to get to know you and treat each and every student as an individual. I certainly feel that it is this personalised support that has enabled me to do so well.

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

I will miss the people who made my time at King’s so special, teachers and students alike. Some of my best experiences during my time at King’s were the wide-ranging enrichment opportunities offered, from the Erasmus Exchange in Turkey to the plethora of theatre productions.

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

The opportunities that King’s offers are unparalleled, but the really unique thing about King’s is that it feels like a community where the teachers know you very well and can therefore provide amazing support.
