I had nothing to compare arriving at Wellington College to so when arriving ‘overwhelmed’ doesn’t really explain how I felt! Coming from a two-bedroom flat in Tottenham to coming to Wellington there was (and is!) no comparison.
I graduated in the Summer of 2019 and have now started at Cambridge University to read Philosophy and Theology at Magdalene College.
Not only did Wellington shape my character, it also prepared me for life at Cambridge University as I know I have been more relaxed and prepared than fellow students starting at the same time as me.
Wellington has helped with my belief in lifelong learning and I know that I will continue to build upon the strong foundations that Wellington has installed within me as I progress through university and in life itself.
Wellington encouraged me to be even more motivated and excited for my future which I didn’t really have before, it showed me what I can be and that it can be a reality.
