1. When did you attend Chipping Campden school? 
I started Chipping Campden School in 2009 and finished in 2016.
2. What are you doing now?
I'm currently working in Freestyle 360 gym in Blockley, doing an apprenticeship in business administration and also getting my Personal Training qualification. 
3. What are your future career ambitions? 
My future career ambitions changes on a daily basis, but at the moment I'm hoping to be a recognised PT. I'd love to take the career to a bigger place and try and make it something there but at the moment I need experience. I would also love to have my own gym wear company but that is a big big ambition! 
4. What's your fondest memory from your time at school?

I have so many fond memories of the school and I still miss it now. However, I have a few ones that will stay in my mind forever. Gold DofE in the Isle of Skye is a strong memory. After being told over and over again that we would be leaving the school at 4am and that we need to be there at 3:30am. I still managed to wake up at 4 and have the teachers wait for me! Never lived that down. Another one would be going to New York with Mr Steeds, Mr Rushworth, Miss Thompson and Miss Henderson. Was an amazing trip, probably one of my best holidays ever! And lastly, another one would be English lessons with Mr Beynon in year 7 and he ability to have a different voice for every character in a book! And maybe the whole of the 2 years in 6th form, they were the good years! 
5. What was your favourite lesson at school? 
Favourite lesson also changed through the years, but it would either be PE, Art or Chemistry. 
6. Who were your favourite teachers? 

Mr Steeds, Mr Tompkins, Mr Banwell, Mr Rushworth, Mr Graham, Mrs Troth, Mrs Gooding and Mrs Hamilton! 
7. Are you still in contact with friends from Chipping Campden?
Absolutely. I only left last year so still have contact with them all.

8. What was you favourite TV Show and Film when you were at school?
That would probably be either Desperate Housewives or American Horror Story. Favourite film would be Spectre.
