Previous School:

Croydon High

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

I’ve enjoyed studying subjects I feel I have a real connection with and it’s great to study them to a much greater depth than at GCSE.

Have you been involved in any extra-curricular activities?

I’m really passionate about Model United Nations (MUN) and have been involved in running the College’s club.

How would you describe the atmosphere at College?

Buzzing! I really love it because the College is never empty and there are always things going on. The variety of clubs and events held at College creates a fantastic atmosphere.

What would you say to anyone thinking about coming to Reigate College who might be worried about fitting in?

The College has events at the beginning of the year to help you settle in, such as the Freshers’ Party and Community Day and I met lots of new people through these. You’ll also find yourself making friends with people from your classes as you’ll share the same interests.

I would say that I was worried beforehand, but once I arrived, I realised I was stressing over nothing!

What are your plans for the future?

I’ve been offered a place in the prestigious College of Arts and Sciences at UPenn – one of the USA’s eight Ivy league universities. I plan to major in Linguistics as well as continuing with Maths and Physics.
