Lower Sixth (joined Millfield in Year 9)
I came to Millfield in Year 9 as a full-time golfer, as it was something I wanted to pursue as a career. What has surprised me is the variety of opportunities at the school that has allowed me to use my time to pursue netball, art, debating at the Model United Nations and other hobbies. Life is busy, but that’s what makes it so enjoyable! I have the time and support to work hard and pursue the multiple things I love doing.

Millfield gives me the opportunity to pursue many avenues at the same time, such as my two sports golf and netball, as well as keeping up with my academic study. I also love how independent the environment is. It’s the perfect example of a place where you get out what you put in; students around me are always embracing life at Millfield to the fullest.

The School has offered me numerous opportunities, such as captaining the English Schools golf side in our match against Scotland, as well as having access to the new amazing indoor golf centre. My golf coach Karen Nicholls really motivates me to train hard. She has supported me through all the good times and most importantly the low times. Not only has she improved my golf more than I ever expected, she always has my back, on and off the golf course.
My BTEC art teacher Mrs Bicknell inspires me and has given me so much confidence and reassurance in the art I create and again, she is always looking out for me. Now I want to pursue a career in art and design, ideally studying History of Art at Leeds or Oxford, to hopefully be an exhibition curator, however golf is still something I will continue to do competitively and love doing.
