Why did you apply to King Ed’s?

Before I was a student at King Edwards College I had heard from family and friends that it is a reputable college with an amazing pass rate, so I went to see for myself on the website what was unique about King Ed’s. I saw that not only was King Ed’s an academic college, but it also sported a rich variety of extra-curricular activities. From the college website you can see that there is enrichment ranging from rugby and volleyball in sports, to music and drama. King Ed’s have the progression pathways which are entirely based on helping students to explore their potential careers. With such care taken to give students the best out of college life I had to apply to King Ed’s.


What have you enjoyed about your studies at King Ed’s?

Throughout my time at studying at King Ed’s, I have always had the confidence that I would be able to ask my teachers for help should I need it. From asking about questions that are on the Olympiad to getting help with something you have found difficult in your course; your subject teacher is always there to help. For example, in maths in Year 12 there was a workshop that was open to anyone that had questions and needed to discuss it in detail with the subject teachers. This confidence I developed going forward within my subjects, made my studies thoroughly enjoyable as I was able to focus on what I loved most about them.


What are your progression plans after college?

After college I hope to study mathematics at university or do an apprenticeship in software engineering. I have had great support in applying to both.


Do you have any tips for success for potential students?

My top tip for a successful student is to really make use of the opportunities that are given to you. Whether it be signing up to extra courses on your chosen subject to explore what you are passionate about or following up an email sent out by careers advertising the newest work experience open to you. Always look to be proactive, you will find that the college offers you chances that might take you by surprise and show you something new that you have never thought about before.
