Ollie Akinboro

Having completed her GCSE’s at George Green School in London, Ollie joined Rugby in the sixth form..  A degree in Biological Chemistry at Sheffield nurtured her passion for medicine, and she is now studying for a Post-Graduate Medical Degree at Liverpool University.  Ollie often makes time for our events and has returned to talk about the Arnold Foundation and also encourage others to apply.

One thing I learnt from Rugby is that academics were important, but so was developing yourself as a well-rounded individual with so much more to offer the world than just good grades. I knew I’d always wanted to do medicine, but I was also keen to get out into the real world, learn more about myself, mature, work and appreciate life and all it had to offer. So I did just that. I spent a couple of years working, travelling, experiencing the world and gaining a new appreciation for how far I’d come.

I’m very proud to have been part of the Arnold Foundation and still give back in whatever way I can, whenever I can. The Arnold Foundation is much more than tuition. It changes lives, changes perspectives, changes aspirations and open doors that would otherwise remain shut.

SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER…

The Rugby School community will physically re-unite in September. We are proud of our staff and students who have engaged in a full, virtual timetable enabling us all to flourish during this challenging time. Plans for a safe return of the whole School community will involve comprehensive risk assessments and a commitment to the BSA COVID-SAFE Charter. Find out more about our bespoke virtual visits and Open Days here
