Why did you choose to study at Xaverian?

Tawfik: “Xaverian seemed like a really friendly and supportive place to be. The Campus stood out and I had heard great things about the Science department.”

Roder: “The reputation! Everyone always talks about how amazing the teachers are and how successful students are as they progress with their careers.”

What has been your favourite subject?

Magdalena: “It’s so hard to pick just one, I like them all for different reasons! But I do love History, each lesson is always really engaging.”

Tawfik: “Biology! It is my favourite, but also the one that challenges me the most, which keeps me motivated to work hard. The teachers apply real-life scenarios to our learning, which makes it more interesting.”

Roder: “Spanish!!! Our classes are so much fun and our teachers have encouraged us to succeed from day one. They have made my experience here so enjoyable.”

What has been the most memorable moment?

Tawfik: “Taking part in enrichment activities, in particular, competing in the British Biology Olympiad Round One earlier this year!”

Magdalena: “The friendships and connections I have made with everyone within the Xaverian community.”

What has been your proudest moment?

Roder: “Walking out of my exams feeling confident that I have tried my very best.”

Magdalena: “I don’t think there is just one moment, but looking back at how much I have improved in each subject since starting makes me super proud.”

Tawfik: “Receiving an offer to study medicine at the University of Oxford was an extremely proud moment for me and my family.”

How has College helped you prepare for the future?

Magdalena: “I think I’ve learnt the true value of hard work. I know if I continue to work hard, I can achieve anything!”

Roder: “Xaverian has helped me make informed decisions about my next steps and taught me that everyone can achieve their greatest ambitions if they work hard.”

If you could describe Xaverian in three words, what would they be?

Tawfik: “Memorable, challenging, joyful!”

Roder: “Enjoyable, happy, spiritual!”

Magdalena: “Fun, fulfilling, friendly!”
