Poppy - Prefect
There’s so much at King’s which makes it a truly outstanding place to attend, from the positive attitude and ethos which radiates, the class sizes, the supra and extra-curricular activity, guest speakers, UCAS support, peer to peer support and so much more!
What I value about King’s High is how generous the teachers are with giving additional resources and extra time outside of the classroom to discuss certain topics or cover areas that you need to recap. They support each and every one of us here and it’s really noticeable.
The facilities that King’s High has on offer are second to none. I particularly make use of the creative spaces such as the music suites, drama rehearsal rooms and the theatres that are on the Myton Road campus with Warwick School and Warwick Prep, to which we will move in 2019.
The level of professionalism is outstanding and these spaces facilitate a variety of events. I was involved in the school production of Les Misérables last year, from which I was able to experience these spaces in all of their glory. I feel very lucky to be part of a school that promotes the arts to the level that King’s High does.
I joined King's High in Lower Sixth. The school make sure that the transition from GCSEs to A Levels is as smooth as possible by putting in place many induction days for you to meet your new year group and get to know the site before you join. In regards to sharing a new Sixth Form centre with the Warwick School boys, I personally think it will be a great environment and the dynamic will be exciting as you will meet new interesting people. Additionally, if you are thinking of going to university then this mixed atmosphere will prepare you for your time beyond King’s.
After leaving King’s I hope to study Psychology at university and go on to become a clinical psychologist, specialising in Autism. Being passionate about the arts, I would like to become a drama therapist and explore different methods of how creativity can restore a healthy psyche.
