Laura is one of our Year 12 students studying the International Baccalaureate. Her favourite subjects at the Academy are English and History but she has been very surprised to discover over the course of Year 12 that she is also fascinated by Theory of Knowledge (TOK) which is part of the International Baccalaureate course.

Laura says ‘There isn’t always a right answer so your mind has to be open to all possibilities. It has made me approach questions in a different, more ‘open’ way.’

Recently Laura enjoyed a 4 day summer school at Cambridge University. ‘Awesome!’ was Laura’s feedback on the experience! Laura is our Senior Lead Learner which means that she helps structure the learning within the Academy, working with the Learning Council and the student Lead Learners – all good experience for her as she would like to become a teacher!
