“I wanted to have a career that helped others therefore a career in medicine seemed fitting.”
I have always found the way the human body works fascinating and wanted to have a career that helped others, therefore a career in medicine seemed fitting. My tutor has been very helpful in helping me decide which subjects to take for GCSE based on my strengths and giving me an idea of what I need to study for medicine. My tutor and houseparent are both easy to talk to and I feel they have my best interests at heart. The additional resources made available to me as an academic scholar have stretched me and provide new areas of learning which should help my university application.
I really love and enjoy playing guitar because it's such a good stress relief but also
challenging when you’re given a new piece to learn. My favourite piece to play has been my most recent one, dos piezas para guitarra 1. Bolero, it's my first grade 4 piece. The Music department facilities are second to none and I find the staff very approachable. Even though I do music to relax and don't follow it academically the staff still give me lots of help and attention.

“I find the post-match analysis very useful and the personalized training sessions have really allowed me to sharpen my individual skills.”
As a committed team player I enjoy working together with my team mates to achieve a fun and rewarding common objective. I think my biggest highlight was the regionals tournament in Year 9. To get to the nationals we needed to win a penalty flick and I saved the goal we needed to go through. I'm also very proud that I have had the opportunity to play for the 1st XI, 2nd XI and U16 teams this year. Hockey has really helped my self-discipline and focus. I love the sense of achievement when we play well and the whole team gels as one. The coaching and facilities are wonderful. I find the post-match analysis very useful and the personalized training sessions have really allowed me to sharpen my individual skills.
I'm from Bristol and have been at Millfield for four years. Millfield is full on, there's always something happening and things for you to be part of. I think my favourite part of Millfield is the variety of opportunities and activities available as well as boarding life and being part of the house. I also take part in the Academic Society, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, the netball B team and Animal Rescue, which is one of the one hundred different Millfield Activity Programmes available to you.
