Friesland Alumni: Ryan Banner


I’m Ryan Banner, once a student at Friesland School.

As Mr Patterson would know, in my early years at School, I never had any motive but to join the Police Force but didn’t ever think I could achieve this. It wasn’t until my final year at Friesland I decided to really start working hard, as before then I wasn’t on target for achieving any grades. At the end of exams, I got the 5 GCSEs I needed, and 4 years down the line here I am in my dream career, as a Police Constable for Derbyshire Constabulary.

Its never too late to try and achieve the best you can, but I recommend you start working hard from the beginning. This way you set yourself up perfectly for whatever career path you may follow!
