Back to Inspiring Stories

Ismail Bashir  (Class of 2017)

Ismail has just taken up a place to read History at London School of Economics.

During his time at Latymer Ismail participated in Senior Freston Society, Greek Club, Film Society, took on the Duke of Edinburgh challenge and learnt martial arts. He was the recipient of a Colin Turner Scholarship throughout his time at the school, funded by the late Mel Smith (Class of 1971) in memory of a teacher who inspired him. 

Reflecting on the opportunity he was given, Ismail says;

“Without the donors who funded me, the teachers who have educated me, and the school who has facilitated me, I would not be who I am today.

I have gained such a great amount of experience and acquired a level of knowledge that I would not have been able to achieve anywhere else.”
