Old Princethorpian (2018)
I come from a single-parent, low income background and Princethorpe was the most critical part of my early childhood development and certainly education. I made friends I still depend on today. I continue to reap the rewards of the extra-curricular opportunities in Design and Technology in which I participated.
My first memory as a young pupil was experiencing the diverse and rounded nature of the school curriculum. There were some staff members who were, perhaps, the best educators and most engaging personalities I’ve ever met, surpassing that of even university standard. Games on a Wednesday is also very memorable - taking the time out for a weekly afternoon of sport had so many advantages for social and personal development.
