  • “The teachers and Careers Department have supported me in reaching my career goals, as I’ve always wanted to attend the MIT School of Engineering.”
  • I would like to become a design engineer because there are so many challenges and it would be great to be a part of their solutions. To achieve my career goal, I have chosen to study A level Product Design, Physics and Mathematics. My teachers are all experienced and skilled in their respective fields and run extra-curricular projects. For example, I recently had the opportunity to help build custom components and programme modules to launch a balloon into space. My teachers and the Careers Department have supported me in working towards my goal of attending the MIT School of Engineering. Our Tutor in charge of Admissions to North American Universities has been instrumental in helping me with applications and in strengthening my personal portfolio.

  • Design is so important because it shapes our world. Designing something new results in a fantastic feeling, and I hope my designs can influence and provoke change. The Design and Technology Department has a well-equipped workshop, with the latest machines and devices to help bring my designs to life. I spend a fair bit of time in the workshop so I can develop my skills, which, for me, is a better learning experience than studying materials and methods from a textbook.

  • Golf is a sport where there is a strong relationship between effort and reward. Playing golf at Millfield has been worthwhile, and the pitch-and-putt facility is a versatile training ground, where I’m able to develop my golf skills. I meet with my coach on a regular basis, who has helped to drastically improve my swing and boost my confidence. Another reason I chose Millfield was because of the excellent Equestrian Centre and staff who enable me to continue with my passion for riding. My skills have really improved and I have received training in stable management and horse care while also becoming certified by the British Horse Society, which will be a great addition to my résumé. In addition to riding and golf I take part in athletics where I train in sprint and hurdles and compete with other schools on a regular basis.

  • Life as a boarder is exhilarating and busy. In addition to our studies, there are lots of co-curricular activities. My favourite thing is how accessible everything is, within five minutes I can be at any of the facilities such as the golf course, the swimming pool, or the Equestrian Centre.
