2018 - 2021

I was a full boarder at Framlingham for 5 years having also fully boarded at Brandeston Hall (now Framlingham Prep) from the age of 7. Over my 11 years I have experienced and learnt so, so much, and it has all shaped who I am today, and I am very grateful for that. At Fram I tried many new things including CCF, Shooting, Cricket, squash and Hockey Goal Keeping. Goal Keeping has been one of my many highlights at Fram, having played in the U16 indoor and outdoor national finals, and in the 1st XI for two outdoor and two indoor National finals where our team was placed 2nd in the indoor hockey in 2018, and 3rd and 4th in the outdoor 2017 and 2018 respectively. We then went on to play in South Africa, in the St Mary’s festival, which was a phenomenal experience and one I’ll never forget!

As well as lots of sport I also juggled French Horn lessons, choir and a few other musical groups, which meant I also needed to learn how to prioritise, which I must admit wasn’t one of my strong points!

In year 13 I was given the role of Head of Victoria, and this helped in making year 13 one of my best years! From a five-year winning-streak of Part Song, to a decent attempt at House Quiz, to an embarrassing number of house swimming volunteers, Victoria really has made my time at school so much more enjoyable! The girls in House really are like family, so leaving them all, this year, will be difficult. However, I know we will all stay in contact.

For A-Levels I studied Biology, Chemistry and Maths. I don’t know what possessed me to take three sciences, as they are all very tricky. However, all three were very interesting subjects which I hope to use in September for a Pharmacy Degree, or to begin training at Sandhurst to become an Army Officer (having gained my place by passing AOSB in the summer of my lower sixth).

No matter what happens in the future, Fram will always be a big part of it. On this note I am proud and honoured to have been awarded the Moreau Leaving Scholarship this year, and I thoroughly look forward to bringing lots of fun, and hopefully some new events to the table, to keep the class of 2018 very much together.
