Louie knew that he wanted to become a surgeon at an early age, in part inspired by his family: his parents both work in non-clinical roles in the NHS and his sister is a nurse. He felt, early on, that the Grammar Stream at Swindon Academy and then a place at Marlborough offered him his best chance of fulfilling his dream.
Boarding has been a new challenge for Louie and he has felt his confidence increase as a result. He feels he is really being pushed academically and he finds the independent study a good preparation for university.
Louie hopes to study Medicine and become a surgeon. “I want to go on and make a difference and help people,” explains Louie.
