Daisy - Deputy Head Girl
I have been at King’s High since year 9. Previously, I lived in Australia so moving to a school across the world was initially very overwhelming but the community of King’s students and teachers really helped me to settle in quickly.
The thing that makes King’s so special is its opportunities and the support system that it provides. One of the fundamental values that King’s has is the belief in encouraging all girls to pursue their aspirations, no matter what they are. All the teachers strive to make all opportunities accessible to you so really, the sky’s the limit!
One of the great experiences I have had is the current privilege of being Deputy Head Girl. Although it is a lot of responsibility, I think that I may not have been able to have this position at my old school due to its big size. As King’s has smaller year groups and a range of leadership positions, it allows one to really experience the close-knit family that King’s is and also be given a lot of responsibility in many roles that will develop great soft skills for the future.
The advice I’d give to any girl considering joining us would be don’t worry about feeling nervous! It’s completely normal to be apprehensive in joining a new school but from my experience of joining in Year 9, it’s nothing to worry about. Everyone is very inclusive and are equally excited to meet new people that join in Lower Sixth. Many also find that at the start of Sixth Form, many friendships change due to the drastic difference in timetables and subject choices, so it feels different for everyone.
After King’s High I am hoping to head off to study Design Engineering at university. Eventually I hope to build a career in design and engineering, which may result in either working in my own business or for a multi-regional company. I would also like to travel and live abroad.
