Hannah joined Wycliffe College in the Reception class. Her parents chose for two older brothers and her to come to Wycliffe after they moved back to England from Canada and the Caribbean.
Hannah’s mum attended Wycliffe for her Sixth Form studies, so was aware of the School before.
Wycliffe seemed a better fit for the family than any other schools nearby. It was a good choice because it allowed my brothers and I to join at the same time, and we could all stay till Sixth Form.
Hannah studied A Level Psychology, Geography, and Religious Studies. Hannah explained, that before her GCSEs the School put on an A Level Fair with all the subject teachers and some pupils to talk through the courses and answer any questions pupils had. This was very helpful to her, as it gave a great insight into each subject. Also, every single member of the Sixth Form had a discussion with the Career Adviser to talk through possible careers/pathways for after school.
We asked Hannah what advice she would give to other pupils, and she said
Do what you are interested in, but also make the most of all the opportunities and get involved in as many events as you can!
During her time at Wycliffe, Hannah feels that going to Iceland in Year 10 is one of the highlights of her Wycliffe career. She said they were so lucky to do some amazing things – hiking on a glacier, walking behind waterfalls and so much more! She adds, sports day is also always a positive experience as you can get involved in so much, including table tennis, badminton, and rowing, as well as athletics in the afternoon.
My biggest achievement was definitely having the confidence to sing the ‘Once in Royal David City’ Solo in both carol services in year 13.
Since completing her A Levels in Summer 2023, Hannah has progressed to study Social Policy at Bath University and eventually aims to have a career in trying to solve social injustices around the world and helping to support people who are less fortunate than herself.
