Why have you come to the UK to study?
I made the decision to study here with my parents as the English education system is the best in the world. It will therefore improve my opportunities for the future.
Have you enjoyed your time at Sherborne International so far?
Yes, I really feel at home here. All the staff are fantastic, both in the boarding houses and the teachers in the classroom. There is a really positive atmosphere and everyone is very friendly.
Lessons are very interesting. I now even enjoy subjects that I never used to enjoy, like science because the teachers really bring the subject to life and involve the students in classes.
In what areas has Sherborne International helped you improve?
My English has improved enormously, both written and spoken.
I have also gained a lot of confidence because the teachers really believe in me which has helped me a lot.
What do you like most about being in England?
Sherborne is a nice quiet town. I also really like the cities, particularly London and Bath.
Where would you like to go next?
I have a place at d’Overbroeck’s in Oxford. I chose this school because it has very small class sizes like at Sherborne International. It also has a very good reputation for business studies.
What career would you like when you finish education?
I’m not sure, but something business related.
Any other comments?
The food here is fantastic – great quality and variety, with lots of international options.
I also really enjoy the sports, including netball, football and athletics.
