I am studying Geography, Sociology and Media and I enjoy Whitefield as you can get support from teachers whenever you need help. Also there are helpful resources that you need always available to you. Whitefield has given me many opportunities that have allowed me to explore different areas that might interest me for my career in the future.
Whitefield provides many opportunities for us to experience the life at work through networking with Access Aspirations. We have been able to get inspirational opportunities to link with employers and businesses and gain experience in different areas of interest. It was independent regarding the student’s choice whether they would like to take part and attend and communication via email is direct from the organisers who provide detail of opportunities. I have found Access Aspirations to be an eye opener to large organisations and widen my career options. I have personally chosen to take part in attending The Houses of Parliament Channel 4 Studio and have met Prime Ministers such as Ed Miliband. This was a great experience as it is something new and it is rare to actually do this. I have gained experience from this and it gives me benefit to put it in my personal statement. I have seen the culture of work in the Houses of Parliament Channel 4 Studio and this has also increased my confidence and knowledge.
The advice that I will give to the younger years is any opportunities that the schools give and you may think it will benefit you, don’t hesitate but take part because in the future it will count. Also, from my own experience, the time that you have in your hands, use it wisely and divide it between education and relaxing because in the future you will wish you have used the time you had more sensibly to benefit you.

I currently study Government & Politics, ICT and Sociology at A Level. I hope to go onto university and gain a degree in Business Computing, and also move on to a career within the Business industry. I like being at Whitefield School due the support in place for all students, which means I am never alone when planning on doing anything and the School always prepares you for your next steps, whether that be Sixth Form, College or University. The advice I would pass on to the younger years would be to always work hard as although you do not realise the significance of education at lower levels, it is the foundations to your whole future.

Personally I have enjoyed studying at Whitefield, because of the supportive teachers and excellent facilities that the school provide us to improve our learning. I stayed in Whitfield from year 7, because of the stimulating environment and the outstanding results students get. I am currently studying a-level biology, chemistry and maths. I chose these subjects as they are the subject required to do medicine at university.
