Zoe | Law Degree
First Class Honours LLB Law Degree at the Institute of Law
In stark contrast, King's Interhigh offered a warm welcome with a caring and supportive environment that helped me maximize my potential to achieve A* grades at International GCSE level and beyond.
I joined King’s Interhigh in 2010 due to feeling dissatisfied with the schools I attended in the Isle of Man where I faced hostility from my peers for being contentious.
I had become increasingly disappointed with the time wasted with pupils chucking chairs around and waiting for teachers who often didn’t turn up for lessons in both state and private schools in the Isle of Man.
In stark contrast, King’s Interhigh offered a warm welcome with a caring and supportive environment that helped me maximize my potential to achieve A* grades at International GCSE level and beyond.
The consolidated style of learning with less time spent doing non-academic subjects appealed to me as I enjoy the prospect of studying in a self-disciplined manner. The social elements of King’s Interhigh such as the King’s InterHigh activity weekend with Prom and school Balls meant I could still enjoy some of the best parts of school social life and meet fellow like-minded students. I also welcomed the flexibility of Interhigh as it meant I could move to Jersey whilst studying my International GCSES.
Preparing for a better future…
After completing my International GCSES at King’s InterHigh, I studied the International Baccalaureate achieving 41 IB points at Hautlieu School in Jersey. During this time, I undertook a wide variety of extra-curricular activities such as charity work in Kenya, volunteering as a teaching assistant at a secondary school and I completed a placement as a journalist at the Jersey Evening Post newspaper.
I acheived a First Class Honours LLB Law Degree at the Institute of Law, Jersey, in conjunction with the University of London International Programmes. It goes without saying that without King’s Interhigh I wouldn’t have been able to come this far. I am starting the Legal Practice Course at Staffordshire University in September and on completion I have been offered a Trainee Solicitor contract at a top law firm in Jersey.
