By the end of Sevenths, I will have spent an incredible decade at the Edinburgh Academy – years in which I have had the opportunity to take part in a wide range of experiences, both academic and extra-curricular. Going from being the first female Dux of the Junior School and winning an Academic Scholarship in Geits, to receiving the Sixths’ prize for English, History and Latin, all of which I am currently undertaking for Advanced Higher along with French.
Outside of lessons, I am part of the 2nd XI hockey team and choir, as well as playing the flute and Fives. I have been a member of the Eco and Charity Committees and am in the midst of my Gold DofE Award. New challenges this year have included Public Speaking, MUN, being a Geits Mentor and Staff-Sergeant in the CCF.
Beyond school, I hope to study History (and English) at university.
