Ally - Senior Prefect
For me, the thing that makes King’s such a special school, is the sense of community we have. The interactions between year groups such as through the house system and the Mothers and Daughters set up mean girls feel valued and comfortable with girls of all ages. Another aspect is the incredible range of activities, meaning there is something for absolutely everyone. This has enabled me to keep up both my sport and music to a very high standard, something which many schools can’t accommodate.
The range of trips on offer is outstanding. I’ve been lucky enough to take part in many trips since I’ve been here including: sports tours to Barcelona and Jersey, geography trips to Iceland and the Azores and the sports tour to South Africa this summer which was without a doubt one of the highlights of my time at King's.
I’d reassure anyone considering joining Sixth Form by telling them about how the Sixth Form team does all it can to ensure that new girls settle in as smoothly as possible. This ranges from the induction week at the end of Year 11, to the bonding trip at the beginning of Lower Sixth. Everyone is very welcoming, so there’s really no need to worry!
After leaving King's I hope to study French and Spanish at Durham or Exeter. My main aspiration is to become fluent in both French and Spanish. After university, I would love to go travelling in South America where I will be able to make the most of my Spanish, and eventually I intend to live and work in a foreign country.
