Grace Hart – Head Girl
Plan: to study Politics at University
Having studied in Malmesbury since Year 7, it was an easy choice for me to continue to the sixth form. It has always had an outstanding reputation as an academic sixth form so perfectly suited my AS Level choices of Government and Politics, English Language, English Literature and Geography. As Head Girl, I feel that this environment has allowed me to develop my transferable skills that are essential to my current application to university. This position has also developed my independence and responsibility which improved my organisation in my AS studies. The small teaching groups and easy access to a range of excellent staff allowed me to reach my full potential throughout the first year which was complimented by the range of help available to us outside of school hours. In the first year, I also took part in the sixth form’s wide-ranging advocacy programme in which I ran a creative writing club, helped in Geography classes and participated in the school’s Global Action Group. Within the first year, we also had the ability to participate in work shadowing in which I gained experience at our local MP’s office in Westminster which was incredibly interesting considering my choice of degree. This excellent opportunity shows how Malmesbury Sixth Form nurtures and encourages its students to take up every opportunity possible that will help them in later life. As I start my second year, I am still very happy with my choice of sixth form and would strongly recommend this close-knit environment to any prospective A-level students.
