An Interview with Christine O
Interview with Christine O – ex-students at Beulah Hill, and now studying at Cambridge.
In March our Head Boy Michael, and our Head Girl Gazelle, interviewed Christine.
Christine was with us from Year 7 until Year 13, and last year got a place in Cambridge University, consistently ranked one of the top 3 universities in the world.
In this interview, with her usual beaming smile and refreshing honesty, she talks openly about her time at Harris Beulah Hill, her ambitions, and how our students can reach for the stars.
