Why did you study these subjects?
I’ve always loved reading so I knew I wanted to do Literature as an A level; I particularly enjoy reading poetry, especially by William Wordsworth and other Eco-critical writers. I also really enjoy learning about the parts of history you don’t often hear about as well as the ones that are half way between fact and fiction- like Piracy, Spanish Gold and Ancient Egypt, so I knew I wanted to explore these subjects further.
Tell us your favourite memory of your time at Carmel college sixth form
My favourite memory at Carmel is either the Catholic Partnership University Challenge, or completing the Duke of Edinburgh awards. I especially loved the D of E because I got to meet people I wouldn’t have done normally, we also had to work really hard to not get lost and avoid being chased by cows! My favourite part of the experience was being with my team, both during the walking throughout the day and afterwards around the campfire on a night.
How did Carmel College help you prepare for the future?
It is mostly through the staff at Carmel College that I have been able to prepare for the future and work towards what I want to do after college. My teachers have been so supportive and helpful both during my lessons and outside of the classroom, which has helped me work hard towards where I want to be as well as decide what I want to do in the future. Carmel College’s environment and work ethic has also given me the determination to pursue my goals as well as feel comfortable and supported whilst doing so.
