"I am taking A Levels in Economics, English Literature and Early Modern History, and studying at Godalming has given me countless opportunities to explore my passions in these subjects and stretch myself academically. I was also able to do an Extended Project (EPQ) as an additional qualification, which afforded the opportunity for detailed research and the writing of a focussed dissertation – in my case the question of obscure facts about amphibious warfare in 1940! Godalming offers myriad enrichment and extension activities, and I was able to complete my Gold DofE award, as well as attending the History Reading Society, and taking part in the ‘Higher English’ and ‘Aim High’ schemes in my AS year. I was privileged to serve as President of the Student Union, including sitting on the Board of the College Corporation; a rewarding experience, and one which allowed me to really get involved with the way the college is run. Following a gap year to cycle round (some of) the world, I will be going on to study English & History, and hope to make a career in politics or the law."
