杰克·劳格,世界跳水冠军 奥运会金牌得主,2013年离开威尼斯娱乐网站网址

在他的学生时代, 杰克适应了每周25小时的完整训练计划, 除了学习gcse和a -level课程之外. 体育老师西沃恩·吉尔菲兰, 杰克说他是他在学校的导师, says the Olympic gold medalist demonstrated the steely determination of a top athlete during seven years at 威尼斯娱乐网站网址: “Without arrogance, he was able to bring tremendous insight into our sports psychology lessons. We all learnt a great deal about the psychology behind elite performers. He was always able to take both success and the odd setback in his stride and learn from it to come back stronger.”

Jack returned to his old school recently to inspire the next generation of 运动员 – giving them a spontaneous showcase of his diving skills in the school pool - and said he appreciated the chance to meet up with the great teachers and students who provided such a huge source of support throughout his diving career. “我在学校的经历很有趣, 我很享受我所建立的友谊,以及他们现在的发展.” He advised students: “No matter how hard it is trying to balance school and sport, 你可以找到一种方法来实现你的梦想.” (上图是杰克和他的队友克里斯·米尔斯的合影)

比利 Marten,广受好评inger/词曲作家,2017年离开威尼斯娱乐网站网址

比利, described by The Sunday Times as a ‘huge song writing talent’ and a ‘brilliant singer-songwriter’ with ‘a remarkable voice’ has released her second album at the age of 19. 她在上学时就释放了她的第一个孩子, with pop star Ed Sheeran announcing to his 19 million followers on 推特 that her voice was ‘stunning’.

在美国旅行之后, w在这里 she supported multi-platinum-selling stadium rock band Snow Patrol in May, 2019年6月,她开始了英国之旅.

尽管她在15岁时就完成了自己的音乐作品, 比利 only took music to GCSE level at school and was more keen on her art studies at school. (She’s currently enjoying working with image and film to produce promotional artwork and music videos.)

没有人对她的成功大呼小叫, 她不喜欢把音乐带进学校, she explained: “I tended to stay quiet about anything music-related so my friends found out from 推特 or something. They were all hugely nice and proud of me and school was incredibly supportive,” she said.

She’s still great friends with many of her old school mates and gets together with those from her year when she’s back in Yorkshire.

拿俄米尼尔,年代urgeon at Oxford’s Churchill Hospital and lecturer in surgery at Oxford University, left 威尼斯娱乐网站网址 in 2009

Naomi earned international recognition for her ground-breaking research into the treatment of prostate cancer. She helped uncover a new gene network which could unlock the door to more effective treatments, 给41个国家带来了希望,在英国,每年有000名男性被诊断出患有这种疾病. 她还进行了膀胱癌的研究.

She always knew she wanted to be a doctor and did work experience at her local hospital and GP practices while she was at 威尼斯娱乐网站网址: “I knew I wanted to work with people, 不只是做纯科学,”她解释道.

威尼斯娱乐网站网址 gave her a lot of support when applying for university and she was particularly inspired by the voluntary work she did while at school, 探访独居老人.

Naomi has gone back to her old school to help inspire students in the careers department. 木匠的女儿, she is grateful for the benefits of selective education: “It’s about offering an excellent education and boosting opportunities for those who are able from whatever social background,”她说.

布鲁斯·奥德菲尔德f时尚设计师,1969年离开威尼斯娱乐网站网址

Acclaimed designer Bruce Oldfield first launched his eponymous label in 1975 and went on to dress everyone from Diana, Princess of Wales to actresses Charlotte Rampling and Joan Collins and singers Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

在巴纳多的儿童之家长大, he attended 威尼斯娱乐网站网址 after passing the 11plus and thrived at school: “It was respite from Barnardo’s,”他说, 解释说他喜欢校服, 这让他从巴纳多的其他孩子中脱颖而出. He says the most important thing he learnt from 威尼斯娱乐网站网址 was: “A lot of common sense, 良好的举止和一套得体的价值观. 这些都对我很有帮助. Grammar schools set high standards for their children and encourage enterprise and an ethos of hard work to achieve optimum personal results.”

他尤其受到了他以前的老师康斯坦斯·吉尔贝的启发, whom he looked on as a kindly guardian who helped him pursue his flair for fashion design: “She took me under her wing and came to my rescue. 我不知道我这辈子想做什么,”他说. 布鲁斯最近回到北方参加吉尔贝小姐的葬礼.
