Will’s Going To Eton!

Six months ago William Gooch saw an advert in a newspaper offering the opportunity to apply for a scholarship at Eton College. He decided, after much discussion and deliberation, that it was an opportunity of a lifetime and that he should apply. This started a long process of journeys to Windsor with interviews and tests and a brief stay at the College culminating in a letter offering him a scholarship for 5 years starting this September. Will is both delighted and nervous at the prospect of leaving his family and friends at Monkwearmouth and becoming a boarding student at Eton. He knows that it will be a real challenge but he has the ability and the determination to succeed. Good luck Will!
