Aged 17, Asha lives in Manchester, England. She has her sights set on the University of Oxford, a career in neuroscience, maybe even a Nobel Prize one day - which is why she is thrilled to have been accepted to Harrow School Online.
Asha is engaged in a rigorous, bespoke programme of A Levels, super-curricular electives and extracurricular activities. But Asha’s main focus is her academic work: She loves that her daily lessons include deep, challenging material that she can master at her own pace, live online sessions with her teachers and peers, individual guidance, and video masterclass segments featuring speakers from Harrow School and elsewhere.
Asha is also developing her leadership skills by spear-heading a school-wide science book group and preparing a TED-style talk about gaming and neuroplasticity. She additionally serves as a volunteer at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital for one hour each week.
Although she is busy and focused, Asha always enjoys the time she spends in weekly House meetings where she has made some good friends from China, Russia, and the UAE. She is looking forward to the chemistry field trip next March, when she’ll get the chance to meet up with them in person.
Meanwhile, Asha's parents are delighted to have discovered this premium-quality but affordable schooling option for Asha. They are also glad to have direct insight into her learning and regular opportunities to consult via email and video chat with Asha’s teachers, tutors and Success Coach about her progress.
