‘I believe John Whitgift Foundation’s bursary support scheme is very important. My biggest ambition for the future is to make a positive impact in the wider community. The legacy I would like to leave is to be able to help open opportunities to everyone. I think the Foundation’s bursary scheme helps to do that.

Whitgift School has opened my eyes to the fact that if I’m willing to work hard there is no limit to what I can achieve. When you are in an environment where the people around you are achieving great things, it inspires you to go ahead and do the same.

Whitgift School is all about opportunity. It has been a great opportunity for me to develop myself as a person and find my passions.’
