When choosing what college I should attend after secondary school I focused entirely on the courses and where these could take me. My passions involved History and Art so therefore I chose for my AS subjects, Art, Tudor History, History of Art and English Literature. When choosing my Sixth Form College I knew that I wanted to study History of Art, the prominence of this subject in Godalming drew me to this college, but my final choice was swayed by the French revolution in History and the extraordinary Art facilities. The Going to Godalming days helped me secure my choices and made the process of change from school to Sixth Form less daunting.

The atmosphere around Godalming is open and friendly, the teachers are always willing to help you achieve the best you can possibly be. They have helped me reach my full
potential and made my entire experience of Godalming enjoyable.

When choosing my A2 subjects I substituted my English Literature A level for an EPQ on Versailles and Louis XIV. This EPQ was hugely important as it showed me a glimpse of what life would be like in completing research at University. It also gave me the opportunity to explore my passions and help me decide which university I should
accept.

Concerning my next step, the Aim High programme provided me with a level of support that allowed me to confidently decide on my final choices and to achieve the top university offers for my chosen subject and I am hoping to take my place to study History of Art at Cambridge. The amount of opportunities that Godalming provides is
exceptional and I have enjoyed every moment of my two
years here.
