Studying at Skinners' Academy since Year 7 has helped me do more than achieve my target grades. I participated in many academic and unique extra-curricular initiatives and have actually learnt things that I probably won’t be able to forget even if I tried.

Honestly, words cannot describe how much gratitude I have for my teachers and the Sixth Form team – they were the greatest impact on my success. The teachers go out of their way to make sure you are supported, understand everything and have the right resources even if we don't ask for it: from setting up weekend sessions to making revision booklets and past-paper packs. The Sixth Form team help us endlessly from our silly requests to our UCAS applications for university - if it wasn't for the efforts of both the teachers and Sixth Form team, I don't think I would have achieved what I did at A-Levels or been as ambitious.

As a new student joining the sixth form, I thought it would be hard to build new relationships but the teachers and other students have been really helpful. I'm really enjoying life at Skinners'.

My family are ecstatic that I am going to study at Oxford. It has always been my ambition as I dreamed of going to an Oxbridge university from Year 10 which is when our teachers started to give us information on university, and there were university fairs and talks. That’s when I decided to give it a shot, although I did think it was far-fetched. I couldn’t be more thankful to Skinners’ and all the staff: the head of Year 13, the school governors from Skinners’ Livery Company and the company itself who contacted people who could help me and arranged mock interviews. If it weren’t for their help I wouldn’t be where I am today.

As students, we are provided with so many facilities to help us with our education so we will have a range of (career related) options in the future.
