Lower Sixth (joined Millfield Prep School in Year 6)
For me the diversity is the best part of being at Millfield. I like how all my friends are from different countries and have very different values. Swimming, music and maths are the main things I do at Millfield. I also study Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths; and am motivated by my friends in the Maths Olympiad Community and at school.

Recently, I competed as part of the UK team in the Romanian Master of Mathematics Competition and won a bronze medal and honourable mention. A highlight of my time here has been being part of the Millfield Mathematics team in the UKMT National Senior Team Maths Challenge and winning the only gold medal as part of the UK team at the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad last year.
The recognition and support we get from school when we achieve success is great. So is the amount of opportunities offered to try new things. These include the dissection activity, volunteering, the wide range of sports, as well as school trips; I am really looking forward to performing in the Camerata, our chamber choir, at Carnegie Hall next year.

Dr Brooks and Dr Fiddes help me to make the most of lesson time. I attend special science lessons instead of normal GCSE science classes, join Philosophy and English lessons which I do not officially take as an A level, and after finishing my GCSE exams, teach other maths classes. In this way, Millfield has helped me to discover my academic brilliance in mathematics, which I hope to study at the University of Cambridge or a university in the US.
