Another impressive alumni visit

The Academy enjoyed yet another impressive alumni visit in September from Rosie Walsh, who left Hertswood for Oxford University back in 2019 having completed A Levels in English Literature, History and Maths, as well as an EPQ. She visited just before returning to Oxford for the final year of her History degree.

Having been Hertswood Head Girl, Rosie has continued to demonstrate her strong leadership skills and is the JCR President of her College, Regents Park - effectively the head undergraduate student of the college.

Head of Sixth Form, Miss McFerran, decided to make full use of Rosie’s excellent public speaking skills and asked her to do an assembly to all Sixth Form Students. It was great to hear a little about Rosie’s experiences at Oxford. She also spoke openly about her experience in Sixth Form and offered the students some great advice. She talked about not taking anything for granted and putting time and effort into all their subjects, even if they find a subject easy. But Rosie’s main piece of advice, and something we wholly endorse, was to say yes to every opportunity!
