Sixth Form Alumni: Katie Baddiley


Studying: BSc Psychology at Bangor University

My time at Friesland Sixth Form was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience even if it was cut short by six months. I studied Psychology, Biology and English at A-Level, and I enjoyed Psychology so much that I decided to continue to study it at university.

One of the highlights of my time at Friesland was the incredible quality of teaching we received. As we are a small sixth form we were able to have smaller class sizes, meaning we got more individual attention and detailed personal feedback on essays.

Another benefit of being a small sixth form was the incredibly tight knit community amongst my year group in particular. I was always challenged to think of alternative perspectives, different viewpoints and to evaluate topics at deeper levels.

I’m so grateful for all the transferrable skills I was taught in all my subjects, especially essay writing skills.
