Rahul Patel - 2017-2018

What subjects are you studying in the Sixth Form?
I am currently studying English Literature, History, Politics and History of Art, all subjects which I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoy.

What do you like to do outside of school?
I'm a keen runner and spend most of my time out and about. I always run each day after school and at the weekend I participate in Parkrun, a weekly timed race which takes place in city parks all across the world. I recently became a member of the National Youth Theatre and I’m an avid film-lover of both old and new cinema which has inspired me, from time to time, to create short films of my own. In between running, acting and filming, I’m always interested in current affairs, something that I not only enjoy, but also find hugely beneficial to my life at school. 

What do you want to do when you leave LGS?
History is a subject for which I have always had a great passion and is something that I would love to continue at university with the potential for later pursuing a career in law. Aside from work, at some point I’d like to run the London Marathon and I’m sure that my love of acting will always keep me ticking over to film auditions.

In the meantime, I’m trying to treasure each day at Leicester Grammar as my time at the school unfortunately draws to an end. By the end of my time here, I would have spent fifteen years of my life at the school, something for which I am truly grateful. 


Lucy Ring - 2017-2018

What subjects are you studying in the Sixth Form?
I am studying Maths, Physics, Geography and DT, I am also taking Further Maths to AS level.

What do you like to do outside of school?
Outside of school I play a lot of hockey, I am a member of Leicester Ladies Hockey Club and I have also represented both the county and the region. Another activity I enjoy is climbing, I regularly go to my local climbing wall and really enjoy the social element of the sport and meeting new people. I also play the violin and piano.

What do you want to do when you leave LGS?
I am going to take a gap year when I leave school and am really excited to travel. Currently, I am planning to go inter-railing around Europe, take a road trip through California and have a ski season in the French Alps.  After that I want to do a degree in Civil Engineering, possibly at Glasgow or Edinburgh University, and pursue a career in this area.
