I left Trinity in 1984. What sets Trinity apart is I think the combination of what you get from an academic perspective but also the wider development, I think Trinity is really good at focusing on the person.

John Whitgift Foundation’s bursary scheme is very important. Being at Trinity made a massive difference to me in terms of my confidence, social skills and also academic outcomes and that had a big effect going into the world of work.

The assisted place really made the difference between coming here or not and therefore a huge difference in my life.
