A Pupils View of UK Boarding Schools – King William’s College
I moved to the UK in 2014, initially, my parents and I were interested in the A Level qualification, but Mr Buchanan, the Principal visited Nigeria for a UK School Education Exhibition. He explained to my parents why the International Baccalaureate (IB) was the better option for me.
This school have some of the best members of staff I have ever met. Each member almost always strives to go out of their way in order to ensure you do the best you can. The teachers always make time for you off timetable to go over grey areas. Even when at home, they communicate through emails, working overtime to ensure that you understand challenging areas of the syllabus. I was nominated to be Head Boy for the 2016/2017 academic year. When I was asked by the Principal, I could not believe what I heard. It seemed so far away when I applied for Prefect. I did not in a million years expect that I would be asked to be the Head Boy. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and have tried my very best to stay cool about it, I am finally getting my head around it now. I am greatly looking forward to the coming year to attempt to fill the shoes of my predecessors and step up to the challenge that I have been given and very excitedly accepted. I want to study Medicine at university and move on to be a surgeon. I believe that the IB has given me the opportunity to be able to pursue my goals and still find opportunities to explore new things and pursue other interests.
