"Since leaving Meadowhead, I have enrolled at Sheffield Hallam University, and I now study Modern Languages (in my case, Spanish and German) with TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).  Following a very successful first year, which saw me make many new friends and obtain 5 firsts and a 2:1 in my modules, I am now in my second year, and preparing to spend five months next year studying in Germany, followed by an academic year working as an English teacher in Spain.  the cowardly lion

I have also joined SHU Drama and have since played substantial roles in two plays— one of which was the Cowardly Lion in a comedy parody of The Wizard of Oz,  a role that saw me nominated for Best Male Performer 2013/14."

 

We ask our former students for one piece of advice which they would give to themselves as a 16 year old. Anthony's is:

“Don’t be afraid to try something new.  If you give something a try but then you don’t like it, you may still learn something from it.  However, if you do like it, then you’ll be really pleased that you gave it a go.  If you never try it, you'll never know if you’ll like it or not.”
