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 King’s InterHigh at the start of Year 12 as the college I was going to attend was neither safe nor able to provide a full education during the pandemic.
What are your dreams for the future?
In the near future, I wish to train for and complete the Bearman triathlon, and accept my offer for Cambridge to study Biological Natural Sciences, specialising in plant sciences. From there, I plan to go into research and fieldwork that I hope will contribute to sustainable agriculture.
What's something you've gained from King's InterHigh that's really helped you personally?
King’s InterHigh has no commute, no distractions from other students and is unique in that between lessons, you can go run up a mountain (or focus on any other passion you have).
In giving such independence over your time, King’s InterHigh provides a more focused, efficient, and personalised environment than the brick and mortar schools I’ve attended.
