Katie Seymour, alumna of Windsor, returned to the Sixth Form on Monday 7th January to talk to Year 12 students about her post-16 experiences so far.
 
Katie spoke about how Windsor had prepared her for future education and life at university.  This included the opportunity to learn Japanese through an extra-curricular club which inspired her to learn the language in greater depth.  Katie is now studying Japanese at Oxford University.  Katie acknowledged the support offered by Windsor teaching and support staff which enabled her to believe in her own abilities, strengthening her resolve to continue her studies at university.
 
Key highlights, regarding her journey since leaving Windsor, included advice on settling into a new place of learning/town, managing finances and the different types of clubs on offer.
 
Katie emphasised the importance of resilience when facing new challenges and how Windsor had helped her with this.
 
Her final piece of advice was to work hard and be passionate about your chosen subject/career –whatever future path you decide on - university, apprenticeship, industry.
 
When starting out on a new adventure the value of staying in contact with school friends and teaching staff cannot be underestimated.
 
Katie is proud to continue being part of the Windsor family through the Alumni network.
