"The academic platform provided supports the problem-solving skills required in business,"

Beyond the academic support, the opportunities outside of the classroom had the biggest impact on skills development. Firstly, playing in sports teams (Football, Cricket & Cross-Country) allowed me to develop teamwork skills as well as through captaining some of these teams, leadership. Furthermore, the internal roles I was given (Deputy Head Boy) give accountability and peer management skills that I still require in my job today. I was very lucky to get the opportunities I did which I have no doubt have supported my development and led me to the career I have today. I believe this is the biggest area that LGS differentiates itself from other schools in providing these opportunities which create great university and work candidates. This is an area I built on throughout university, from the work ethic that was instilled in me at LGS.
