News ‐ 31 Jan 2020

Jordan Glanfield left the academy in 2016 having achieved 4 A*s and an A in his A Levels, and is now studying for his Masters in Computer Science at Imperial College London. It's been a pleasure to be able to welcome him back this term to work with our Y12 Computer Science students as part of the "Communicating Computer Science" module of his Masters course. 

Following a successful internship, Jordan has secured a job offer for when he completes his Masters with King Digital Entertainment, makers of games such as Candy Crush saga.

His top tip for our students is be curious!

"Never stop asking questions and wanting to know more, whatever your interest or passion. Make time to deepen your knowledge, this could be as simple as following the latest in tech news, or keeping up to date with political issues.There's no spoon feeding of information once you leave school!"
