Joined EMS: 2015
Former School: St Luke’s Science and Sports College
School Type: 11 – 16 state school
Studied in addition to Maths and Further Maths: Physics
I have a younger brother who is at the EMS right now!
I won the Baer prize in the astronomy department at my university along with three other undergraduates for our excellence in academics, research, and outreach.
I loved maths and physics and knew I wanted to continue that for uni and so I figured the EMS would prepare me well, and it did!
The people. The teachers and students form a community that is unlike any other 6th form. The building feels like home and everyone feels like family.
The biggest surprise was probably how relaxed all the classes felt. I enjoyed sitting on couches in some classes and being treated as an adult by the teachers.
As cliche as it sounds, just be yourself! EMS is a wholly wonderful and accepting place where you can relax and relate to others that are just as excited about maths as you are!
