Hi, my name is Bec and I'm Head Girl. I am currently taking Music, Drama and Biology, and hope to study Film at University in September. When I'm not busy trying to pass my exams, I spend my time writing, drawing, playing piano and annoying my friends with never-ending singing.
I value kindness and honesty, and believe that anybody can achieve anything with enough work and patience. With the current situation as it is, it is important to support each other more than ever, so we should all lend a helping (and sanitised) hand wherever we can.
Be kind to yourself and others.
Since my first day, Sponne School has 'inspired achievement' at every given opportunity. From Mr Massey welcoming each student, Heads of Year keeping track of progress and subject teachers motivating students all reflect the dedication staff have to their profession.
I am studying Economics, English and Philosophy, with the ambition to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at university. For the remainder of my time at Sponne, I plan to mentor some students from the younger years, using an email-based system as an alternative to face-to-face interaction.
In addition to my educational potential, Sponne has developed me as an individual and provided me with the right mentality and opportunities for life beyond school.
I joined Sponne for A Level last year, after finding every aspect I would want in a school and a community to push me forward in my final two years of statutory education. The A Levels I chose are History, Philosophy and Geography. Despite the large amount of writing for all my subjects, I am passionate and proud to be studying these at Sponne and I have had endless support and encouragement within these subjects from my teachers and peers.
Since the decision to come to Sponne, I have developed as a person as well as in my education, which has been noticeable in my grades and my own personal growth. Sponne has given me further opportunities. An example being that I became an Ambassador for The Holocaust Educational Trust. This involved me attending seminars with other schools in the East Midlands, plus a day trip to Auschwitz. As Deputy Head Girl, I want to use my friendly character and communication skills to represent the student voice of Sponne.
My time at Sponne started when I joined in Year 7 and choosing to study here has, by far, been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. This school provides an environment where students are able to develop as individuals both academically and socially. The Sponne Community is something really special, I distinctly remember during Year 7 how easy it was to settle in and really feel like I was a part of this excellent school. In my spare time I am a keen musician and sportsman; the vast array of extra-curricular opportunities at Sponne gives students the chance to prosper in the things that they really love to do - this is what makes this school such a great place to study!
I am pursuing A Levels in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Music and I hope to study Aerospace Engineering at university next academic year. It was the teachers here that sparked my enthusiasm for STEM subjects (I was always set on going to music college!); the passion and expertise that the teachers have for their chosen disciplines is really quite remarkable and is something I have valued highly during my secondary education. I look forward to making the most of my final year at Sponne and reflecting on what a great experience I have had over the years.
