He was awarded Gold in the Senior Maths Challenge UKMT and currently reads Mathematics at Oxford University.

Faith achieved an excellent set of A Levels with us in 2013, grade A in Biology and Chemistry and A* in Mathematics. Faith is a bright, highly motivated and committed student and is held in great esteem by everyone in the college. Her leadership skills were demonstrated repeatedly in the organisation of fund-raising events and she showed great maturity when representing the college at recruitment events. Her friendly, considerate and supportive approach was much appreciated assisting new students settle into the college. Faith’s ambition is to become a doctor and her drive to fulfil this led to her taking a gap year in order to apply to read medicine.
