My time at King’s InterHigh
Why did you join King's InterHigh, and what has your learning journey with us meant to you?
I joined Kings InterHigh when the Coronavirus hit and was causing lockdowns; I wanted my education to remain consistent. My learning journey with Kings InterHigh has been very enjoyable. I’ve valued the flexibility of the education, as well as the interaction with teachers and students from all across the world.
What are your dreams for the future?
After completing my A Levels, I am going to the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, to continue with sociology and history, as well as venturing into new subjects such as psychology and Spanish. I’m hoping to find and specialise in one of these areas and hopefully find a career that fits these interests.
What's something about King's InterHigh that you've really benefited from personally?
One thing I have really appreciated at King’s InterHigh is the contribution of opinions from all over the world. In my subjects, people were able to bring in perspectives I would have never been exposed to before joining such a diverse school environment.
