Chemistry, Geography, Maths and Extended Project Qualification, AAAA progressing to the University of Cambridge to study Geography

“The High Achievers programme was really great in so many ways. All the discussions about different current affairs, ethics, wider reading of topical and critical issues were really interesting and engaging. We went off and researched all sorts of different topics. We had really challenging mock interviews that give you practice at being put on the spot and how to effectively expand your ideas. It really made me focus on how to express myself effectively.

I enjoyed all of my subjects, though obviously Geography the most! All my tutors have been outstanding; they were so welcoming and always enthusiastic. They were all naturally understanding in their approach and went out of their way to help. They were always finding new ways to make everything interesting. You aren’t going to get that sort of one-to-one attention anywhere else. Everyone wants you to achieve and enjoy your time here.

I got involved with both of the college productions which were a great way of letting off steam and just having so much fun. I love all the singing and dancing and made lots of really good friends.

I'm really excited about going to university; it all feels like a bit of a whirlwind at the moment! The fieldtrips look pretty amazing - Tenerife, Denmark and Morocco; lots of opportunities! There is the chance for all sorts of modules and specialisms!"
