Kings’ School, Winchester

Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Computer Science

What are your plans for when you leave Barton Peveril?

“I plan to go to university to study computer science after college and hopefully become a software developer. Barton Peveril has helped me to decide this through discussions with my tutor and subject teachers, who gave helpful advice and pointed out what career options were available to me.”

What do you think you have gained from your studies?

“I have learned to be more independent from my studies as the teachers give enough support to make sure I understand the subjects, but it is up to me to practice them. I have enjoyed problem solving in my lessons e.g. programming in computer science or applying the maths I have learned to real life problems, as it gives a feeling of accomplishment. My teachers have supported and challenged me, by giving me appropriately challenging tasks to do and helping me to understand if I am unable to do the tasks or giving me more advanced tasks if I am able to complete the tasks easily.”

What do you think of the support offered at Barton Peveril?

“The support offered by my subject teachers and tutors has been invaluable to me, as it has shaped my aspirations and helped me to decide what I want to do at university as well as potential careers.”
