Head Girl

‘Since I started Sixth Form for I have had 15 weekends away. I have taken part and completed Ten Tors 55; have been to look at three universities and am applying to Edinburgh; have been on two CCF Camps, a 3 day NCS residential and assisted with Silver DofE. I have also been on a 4 day Geography trip to Bournemouth, undertaken my Gold DofE practice expedition in the Lake District for a week, achieved the Three Peaks Challenge in 23 hours 29 minutes and have been on the Geography trip to Naples. As Head Girl and Perfect I also helped plan the Wednesday afternoon Enrichment and Life Skills sessions. I Can’t imagine that I would have more opportunities at any other Sixth Form’
