Kieran (Class of 2014)

Thanks to a full bursary, Kieran joined Year 7 from a small primary school.

Kieran left Latymer in 2014 with 4 A* grades at A Level. He was focused on his academic studies throughout his time at Latymer but he also made the most of all the co-curricular opportunities on offer and took an active part in School life. Whilst in Sixth Form, Kieran played squash; took up guitar; worked as an Academic Mentor helping younger pupils; joined the Freston Debating Society; regularly attended JS Mill Society talks; and was a member of Latymer’s Model United Nations team. He also volunteered in a local Scouts group and took part in the 2014 World Challenge Expedition to Mozambique and Swaziland. It can safely be said that Kieran made the very most of his time at Latymer.

Kieran read Politics and Economics at University of Bath and is now in a graduate post in accounting at Smith & Williamson.

Upon leaving the school, he wrote:

“My years at Latymer have meant everything to me. Latymer has been my entire life for the past 7 years, and has given me too much to list in a letter; a good education, social and life skills, fantastic teachers as well as extra-curricular and academic opportunities galore. All of this, and the success that I will hopefully make for myself in the future have been created and gifted to me by the Colin Turner Scholarship and its remarkable founder, the late Mel Smith.”
