On Music at Headington
It’s super fun. You get to try out different instruments in the music lessons – I just love it. In my old school I did singing lessons up to Grade 3 so I’m taking it on from there, I was in the Ensemble Concert and had a chance to perform at the Senior School too, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to. I hope next year I will be able to as I was the only Prep School pupil invited and I felt so honoured. I have had lots of opportunities to perform, it’s very different to what I had done before.
You can just be who you want to be. You can embrace all the curriculum activities.
On her ambitions
I want to be a person who is really, really good at Drama and Music when I grow up. I’m looking forward to being an actress or something similar. By the end of my time at Prep School, I would like to be on Grade 4 Flute and I would also like to get a lead role in the Year 6 play. When I go to Senior School, I want to join the Orchestra and Drama Club.
