Dear all members of Francis Barber,
I wanted to thank you all for giving me a chance to carry on in my education despite my catastrophic situation in Year10. The fact that the all team didn’t give up on me and helped me get back on the right track gave me the chance to follow the curriculum which was meant for me. I am now pursuing my education in Graveney sixth form and I am studying Maths, geography, economics and french for my A-level with the ambition of applying to successful universities such as Oxford and LSE. With your help I was allowed back into a school where I sat 10 GCSEs. I made my time there count as much as possible as I came out with A*´s in Maths, Spanish, Geography, French and Religious Education; as well as A’s in English literature, ICT, and English language (currently getting remarked); B in business and C in science. As I know how important help can be to someone in a desperate situation, I am giving lessons to a Year11 (in Maths) and a Year4 (in French) in order to help them get through KS3/4 with the support they deserve.
A little message to current pupils:
I was kicked out of school, arrested twice and taken to court in the space of 6 months. No matter how hard it gets, staffs from Francis Barber, friends and family are here to make you succeed. Even if I doubted myself in those extremely dark moments I managed to not give up on school, outsides activities but also on my ambitions. Being in trouble with the law, kicked out of school or your house isn’t so bad after all as you can only move forward and try to become a better person as you have no other choices. It’s never to late to start building your path to success. I am clearly not smarter than you or better than you so If i managed to make it out of those endless difficult times you can also do it!
Keep it up
