Meet Devon!

Why did you want to be a prefect?

I wanted to be a Prefect to become recognised as someone people can approach if they need advice. I hoped to encourage people to get involved in all aspects of the school, whether in sporting events or by joining the Student Council. I also wanted to inspire younger students to strive to reach their goals and focus on what they are passionate about.

What is one thing you would like to achieve while being prefect?

As a Prefect and Chair of the Student Council, I hope to encourage more people to get involved with the Council and the Wellbeing Hub. I want to make the Student Council more prominent within the school so we can make the rest of the students aware of the changes we have already made and our plans. I hope to make a positive impact on the school this next year and for years after I leave with my involvement in the EDI group and the Wellbeing Hub.

What is something you are passionate about and why?

Since my dad got hit by a car when I was seven, I have been passionate about studying medicine because I was fascinated by science and have always wanted to help people. I have always hoped to study medicine at Oxford University, so I entered an essay competition and won a place to experience life as an Oxford medical student over two weeks this summer. It was the most amazing experience of my life!

Do you have any post-Worksop College plans?

After I leave Worksop College, I hope to study at medical school in Oxford or London to become a surgeon.

What is your favourite Worksop College tradition?

My favourite Worksop College tradition is House Song. I love when all the houses come together to perform and dance in front of each other.

What is your funniest Worksop College memory?

One of the funniest memories I have at Worksop College was when we did House Drama. I loved seeing everyone’s costumes and all the props that got used.
