How has your time at Regents Park helped you with your life after education?

Regents Park helped me to pass all of my exams with C’s and above, so that I was able to go to college for further education.

What did you do when you left Regents Park?

After Regents Park I went to Tauntons, university did not really interest me and I wanted to start working as soon as possible. I completed the two years and then started my job here doing an apprenticeship in Business Administration.

As long as you try and do your best that’s all that matters.

12. Anisha Khan (2008-2013)

How has your time at Regents Park helped you with your life after education?

Gave me the confidence and a love for the sciences that pushed me into going into studying at higher education.

What did you do when you left Regents Park?

I went on to study at Richard Taunton's College, taking Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. Originally I planned to go into Forensic Science but fell in love with Psychology and that became my career path.

Took Psychology at University of Winchester and am now planning to study Computer Science so I am prepared to specialise in Cyberpsychology. During my degree I worked as both a Research Assistant but also a Statistics Demonstrator for my professors which helped me gain experience and contacts needed for the future.

What advice would you give your former 14 year old self?

Don't be afraid to ask for help, for anything! Whether it's grades, physical health or mental health (especially that last one!).

Take care of your friends and of yourself -try not to take everything too seriously and enjoy yourself!

1. How has your time at Regents Park helped you with your life after education?

Gaining 11 GCSE’s B-C has allowed me to go further into careers which is obviously important. However, being a part of after school activities such as Rock Challenge/Sport really helped me develop in confidence and mould me as an individual but also develop team skills which I could use in all aspects of life i.e. working in America for 3 months, travelling, putting required skills into any job situation.

2. What did you do when you left Regents Park?

When I left school I’ve experienced a variety of education/careers. I firstly went to Tauntons College to study Sports Coaching for two years. I then had a gap year where I worked full time in retail to fund a trip to Australia. I decided to go to University of Winchester to further my career in Sport Coaching. During one of the summers I spent 3 months in Boston, America, at a Summer Camp as an Athletics Coach, which was the best experience I could have asked for. After this I had a complete change around where I worked at Marwell Activity Centre for a season. A complete different opportunity arose to work in a pharmacy at the hospital where I am now going into my second year of training to become a Pharmacy Technician.

3. What advice would you give your former 14 year old self 

GCSE’s are important even if they don’t feel like it at the time! But embrace every good opportunity, work hard and be ambitious with what you want in life.
