1986 Leavers’ Fund

Emma joined CH in 2016 and has since been benefitting from the generous support of the 1986 Leavers’ Fund – a partnership of Old Blue donors from the class of 1986.

Emma reflects on her CH journey so far:

“I used to be shy and I was scared to try new things, but since I started at CH, I feel like I have become more confident and I try new activities which have really benefited me. CH has really helped me to mature. I’ve also become more independent and responsible and I’ve learnt to take care of my own belongings and take care of myself and other people as well. My teachers especially have been a help to me.

My favourite subjects are Biology, Latin, Spanish, Art and Food & Nutrition. I have enjoyed playing netball and hockey s well as fives which is a sport that I have never played before and it’s now one of my favourite hobbies.

I have had the opportunity to go on a number of school trips this year including the Globe Theatre in London to watch Romeo and Juliet which was an amazing performance. I also went to Hever Castle which was really fun – especially the maze!”
