I have to say that I was a little worried about leaving my small primary school and joining Bournemouth School (it seemed so big!), but I soon found my way around and made some new friends. I have enjoyed the House Competitions, especially rugby and basketball. At the beginning of the year, I did find balancing homework against my out-of-school interests a bit of a challenge, but I've still been able to continue training and competing at a national level in trampolining. I really like the food and the range of opportunities available to everyone. All the students seem to get on with each other really well. I'm really looking forward to next year.
