House Captain

Samantha Church is a bubbly pupil with an ever-ready smile. Her A-levels in art, geography and business are an ideal combination for the degree in Fashion, Marketing and Management she hopes to study next year. Samantha's art – bright, colourful and strongly influenced by her Kenyan home – has been exhibited at the Brooke Gallery in Exeter. She is a keen photographer and enjoys taking pictures of various Carpie events. Samantha is an able sportswoman too, representing King's as the first pair in tennis, playing midfield U18A hockey and enthusiastically contributing to all house teams, including swimming.
