Creating a personal statement to impress

When it comes to applications and interviews, we’ll make sure you have plenty to talk about.

Whether it’s volunteering in the community, or a work placement with a respected employer, you’ll have the material to create a personal statement to impress any university or employer.

At St Mary Magdalene you’re treated as a person with the ability to help everyone and everything for the better - Casey Year 13

Over the last year, students have walked 100 miles across Holland, visited Parliament to watch a live debate, hosted a Christmas party for Senior Citizens, held a weekly discussion of contemporary news issues with Deutsche Bank, spent a week surfing in Newquay, planted bulbs in the local Church garden, and tackled homelessness and other social issues through the Envision charity.

Of course, all this is on top of the usual extra–curricular activities you can expect from a great school: music, sports, chess, language classes (including Mandarin!) and more.

And when the times comes – and you have enough to write about – our dedicated tutor, based in the Sixth Form Library, will help you craft it into a really impressive personal statement!
