City of London School and Me

The Sixth Form bursary I received to study at City of London School opened up a world of opportunities that I previously did not have access to. In addition to the brilliant teaching, I was able to participate in academic Olympiads, essay competitions, extra-curricular societies and even a trip to CERN!

More importantly, I met many ambitious friends who continue to inspire me today. My time at CLS was the catalyst that helped me go on to study engineering at Cambridge and begin a career in management consulting.

My experiences at CLS were also critical in motivating me to create The Stairwell Foundation: a non-profit focused on working with bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to improve social mobility. I am very grateful to everyone who helped make my bursary, and all the resulting opportunities I had, possible.
