My name is Jordan, I was recently given the opportunity of a lifetime when I was awarded a scholarship at the Royal Hospital School. Due to my family's situation we were also given a bursary although this doesn't cover enough of the funds. This pathway recently presented itself and now it feels like it has just collapsed around me.
I am hoping to study my A-levels there and eventually go on to study medicine at Cambridge University with the aim of becoming a doctor. This career route has always been there, I hope to specialise in either cardiology, neurology or oncology, all of these are areas close to my heart.
I am currently a student at Stour Valley Community School in Clare in my final year of GCSE's. A prestigious school such as The Royal Hospital in Holbrook is not an easy school to be offered a place. My parents both cried when they received the offer of a school place based on my academic assessment exam. 'Academic Scholar'.......sounds like a fantastic privilege and award which I have earned by demonstrating my knowledge and acting in a manner that RHS pride themselves in.
I now find myself placing my future in the hands of strangers instead of being in control of my own destiny. This not a feeling I am enjoying, however I am trying to raise the much needed funds to see me through the 2 years at RHS. Any additional money raised will pay for the extras that come with being a student at RHS.

Any money over and not required will be left to RHS to enable any other student requiring additional financial support like myself.
You may think 'why doesn't she go to a state sixth form?'
Opportunities like this don't come along very often in life and I would like to rise to the challenge and make my family and RHS proud of their 'Academic Scholar'.
My future is in your hands.
Thanks for reading my story
