I received a bursary throughout my seven years at LEH. The bursary scheme enabled me to receive an excellent education and be part of a welcoming and exciting community, which I would not otherwise be able to access.

My success at LEH can definitely be attributed to the high standard of teaching. The one thing I valued most about the teaching at LEH was the amount of individual support from staff members. Teachers were always on hand to help with any problems, which ensured that I could work to the best of my potential. Without financial support, I may not have achieved such a high level of academic success at GCSE and A-Level, which enabled me to gain a place at a Russell Group university.

My bursary also allowed me to supplement my education with residential and international trips, for example to the USA and Iceland. I have been lucky enough to experience new cultures and sights, whilst simultaneously learning about my subjects to a higher level, for which I am extremely thankful.

I am now studying Politics and International Relations at Bristol University. I have left LEH not only with an outstanding education and qualifications, but also with friends who I know will always be there to support me and skills which have prepared me well for the next stage in my life. I am very grateful for the last seven years, and the opportunities I have had due to the bursary scheme.
