I joined King's in 1991, the first year that girls were accepted into the Third Form. We had eight girls in our year, along with 80 boys – I recall that I was one of only two girls in my class.

Coming from an all girls school this was quite a new experience at first but one from which I learned to believe that I could do anything I put my mind to!

There are so many lasting memories from King's and great friendships that I will be forever grateful for.

We often laugh about the 'character building' experiences of CCF 24 hours exercises, be they in the wind and rain on Braunton Burrows or with the British Army in Paderborn, Germany.

It's often the simplest memories that spring to mind though long summer evenings drifting around with friends, or dashing round the corridors to get to class.

I stayed at King's from Third Form to Sixth Form, was house captain of Meynell and a school prefect.

After leaving King's I travelled the world, went to university to do a degree in English and Drama and now work as the head of interior design for a super yacht company in London (Winch Design).
