I really enjoyed my time at WGS, especially the small classes and year group which meant that everyone got to make friends and participate and join in all activities in the class. My fondest memory was winning the ISA hockey plate in Y5 playing in goal at the Olympic venue in Lee Valley and nearly winning again… but coming in runners up as captain of the team in Y6. I still play hockey, playing in goal for Old Cranleighans in Thames Ditton in the U14 team.
I really appreciate the skills and qualities that I developed during my time at WGS, many of which were put to use in the school Endeavour Awards.
I started sailing in Y5 as part of my bronze Endeavour award and now spend all of my free time sailing and racing. I am part of the British Youth Sailing training group for London and South East and in 2022 I got to race in the Topper World Championships in Lake Garda, Italy which was amazing. I am now a qualified assistant sailing instructor and help teach in the school holidays
Now I am at Hallford School, which is a boys school in Shepperton and I am in Y9. I am still friends with some of my WGS classmates in fact 5 of us joined Hallford from WGS at the same time. Hallford is a similar sort of school to WGS. It is small and friendly and everyone is encouraged to get involved and be the best version of themselves. I am really enjoying sciences and DT, an learning to play the drums and have just completed my bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award, putting into good use my WGS Endeavour award skills.
