Christopher’s story


Christopher is a current student at Swansea University studying Materials Engineering.

While he was at school, his teacher suggested that he would be a great fit for a Royal National Children’s SpringBoard Foundation placement, and he joined Marlborough College in the Sixth Form.

Here, he shares how the experience of boarding school shaped him, and his insights into why such programmes are so important.
