The teachers at Heart of England were always happy to offer additional academic support if I needed it, and the school itself offered many unique opportunities which helped to enrich my application for applying to study medicine at university. I have always found the teachers and tutors at the school and sixth form incredibly helpful and supportive of my ambition to study medicine, and it has been a pleasure to have been a student at Heart of England school for the last seven years.
