James

From what age did you attend TGS? 4–11 (Reception–Year 6)

What school did you go on to after TGS?  City of London School.

What are you doing now? Now I am finishing Year 7 and moving on to Year 8.

Any future career aspirations? I would like to become a research doctor.

Any other interests? In my spare time, I play jazz on trumpet, and I draw characters and cartoons.

What did you enjoy about your time at TGS? I enjoyed the time after the 11+ exams (but not the last day of school) as many of the lessons were fun team puzzles and team games.

What’s the main thing you remember when you think back to your time at TGS? When I think about my time in TGS, I think about my friends and all the teachers that helped me.

What was your greatest achievement at TGS? Becoming Head Boy.

What did you learn or take away from your time at TGS?  I think the greatest thing TGS taught me was my interview skills as I will most likely use them throughout life.

Any fond memories of teachers or events? One of my fondest memories was at one of the music concerts in 2019, where I had recently got my braces on. I found it hard to play my trumpet, but when I gave it a go during the concert, I somehow managed to play a song and I did it quite successfully.
