Tell us about what you've been up to since leaving Shotton Hall...

After school I went to Hartlepool Sixth Form College where I studied a Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care and Applied Science. I decided not to go straight to university afterwards as I wanted to get experience working in a hospital setting beforehand. I love my current job as an apprentice as I work with a lot of people and get to experience lots of different operations which I find really fascinating. When my apprenticeship finishes I want to go to university and study adult nursing as I aspire to be a nurse.

What do you remember most about your time at Shotton Hall?

The thing I remember most about my time at Shotton Hall has to be Mr Hardwick's science lessons as he is a very good teacher who helped me achieve an A in chemistry!

How do you think your school days helped you prepare for what you do now?

My school days helped me prepare for what I do now as I use a lot of skills and knowledge that I learned in maths from my teacher Mr Taylor (the best teacher ever) in my daily job. 

What is your funniest memory from Shotton Hall?

My funniest memory of being in school was when I went flying off my chair in a French lesson and ended up underneath the table - I now know not to swing on my chair!
