My years at the Dragon were some of the best years of my life. Saying the teachers were helpful in supporting me and my interests would be an understatement. I can trace my love of music back to E block where we sang group songs with the head of music. I sang a lot before class began and instead of telling me to keep quiet, my form tutor took me aside and discussed my newfound love of singing. She arranged for me to join the school choir. Soon the choir mistress had me in chamber choir and started the blue dragon singers, which I thoroughly enjoyed. By A block I was lucky enough to be in three choirs, starting the clarinet and in the school musical of Pirates of Penzance! Needless to say, my love of music only grew from there culminating in a first in music at Southampton University.
This is only one of many aspects of who I am today that I can trace back to the exceptional care and opportunities at the Dragon.
