We spoke to Maddy about her A Level results; “I am beyond pleased with my results, which were four A*’s, and I hope all my wonderful teachers can share some of my happiness. I am proud of my offer from Oxford University, but I have turned it down and am hoping to apply to study English Literature and History at Edinburgh next year instead. If I have learnt anything through the application process, it is that you should really just listen to your own heart. The world is full of opportunity in a way that can become overwhelming, so following your intuition is often the way to go.
St Edward’s will always be special to me – the teachers are always what has made it what it is, and given me a passion for all my subjects. I hope to spend this year doing all the painting, sewing and music I didn’t have enough time for during A Levels, and I look forward to seeing where life might take me.”
