"I came to Latymer  for the Sixth Form in 1998, before that I was at an all-girls school. I was one of the first intakes of girls, so it was quite a change going from an all-girls environment to a then all-boys school, but they were two of the best years of my education. I had the most wonderful time and I learnt so much."
