The thing that makes King’s so unique is the number and type of opportunities we are given; aside from the huge number of extra curricular activities available, King’s offers some amazing trips. I have been lucky enough to travel to France, Iceland, Italy and India with my friends and made incredible memories. On the India trip of Summer 2018 we spent a week volunteering in a school for underprivileged children. It was the single best thing I have ever done: teaching over 50 students ages 4-5, in a language they don’t speak. Being able to give back and awarding these children with opportunities that never would have been available to them without us and our fundraising was an absolutely magical feeling.
I’d say to any girls considering joining Sixth Form at King’s - the school as a whole is so welcoming and friendly. While it may seem daunting because the cohort is so tight, you will become part of a family that genuinely cares about you.
After King’s I plan to read Engineering at university before joining the Army as a Royal Engineer and working in Disaster Relief.
