Louisa is a day student from Glastonbury who joined Millfield Prep in Year 9. Louisa is currently studying the subjects History, Drama and French as well as English, Maths and Additional Maths for her GCSE’s. She entered the essay during the summer break, “I was inspired to write this essay as I felt it was important to extend my academics outside of the classroom and find external opportunities.” Louisa recalled lessons in Biology to help her write the essay, “I found that while writing my essay I needed to do lots of research however the content I had learnt from lessons, in particular biology made understanding what I was reading easier.”

After receiving feedback from Immerse Education Louisa said, “I was very proud of myself when I found out that I had won as there were thousands of entrants from all around the world. I love that Millfield offers a diverse range of education that has allowed me to become well rounded and have the confidence to find external opportunities to enhance my academics.”
