When Olivia started Senior School she was determined to make the most of every opportunity – in and out of the classroom. That pioneering spirit has resulted in Olivia discussing the subject she hopes to go on to study at University – Geography. “I didn’t like Geography but my teacher in GCSE said ‘stick with it’ and he was right. Now I enjoy it and hope to go on to study Geography at university when I have completed my A Levels. You feel that you can go to your teachers or tutors to talk to them. They always listen to you.”
Olivia says her confidence has grown through the activities she has taken part in including being on a successful Netball team, taking part in the debating club and completing her Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. “No one judges you if you try something and it goes wrong. The most important thing is to give it a go.”
Giving back is important to her. Olivia helps run the Eco-Warriors Club at the Prep School. She organised games at the local youth club and took part in the Senior School’s Make a Difference Day.
“Why did I decide to carry on at Wycliffe for Sixth Form? I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.”
