Old Blue Emily Aldridge (2020)
Emily studied Music as an A Level subject; she took her Grade 7 examinations in piano and singing, and taught herself to play the guitar. She was also in the inaugural Girls’ Chamber Choir and played a member of the girls’ group in the Blue Coat senior production of ‘Little Shop of Horrors’.
Emily was an active member of the School Council, which involved talking to her peers about school issues and discussing possible changes. She also worked towards her Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award, which included an expedition to Nepal.
Emily’s other A Level subjects were Chemistry and Biology, and she also took on an Extended Project Qualification on the history of the effect of anaesthetic on the animal brain as she hopes to become a vet. She was finally appointed as Senior Prefect in her final year at the School, and was a true example of a model student.
