Favourite subject in school and why?

Chemistry. It is a fascinating subject covering many areas of science and providing an intellectual challenge. I particularly enjoyed practical work- handling complex equipment, following procedures and in-depth analysis of results.

What have you done since leaving KEVI?

Started a masters degree in Chemistry at Durham University.

What has been your biggest achievement in life and how did your experience at KEVI help you to achieve other successes?

Achieving 12 A*’s at GCSE. King Edward VI provided me with the skills, ability and knowledge to continue with my academic success and ultimately obtain a place at a prestigious university.

What one piece of advice would you give to current students?

Begin research into potential career options as soon as possible so you can make educated decisions regarding subject choices whether it be at GCSE, AS level or A-Level so you aren’t restricted on applying for certain degrees etc

What’s your next big goal?

Achieve academically to secure a 4th year industrial placement with a world renown company.
