Oscar (Beauchamp, Upper Sixth) is currently studying for his A-Levels, he is also a Prefect, a sportsman, and a Regimental Sergeant Major in the CCF.
Geography, History and Business are Oscar’s A-Level subjects, in which he will take his final exams this summer. He hopes to go on to university to further study Geography. Outside of academia, Oscar is highly involved with the Combined Cadet Force here at Langley.
“I joined the CCF in Year 9 and I have been in the Army section from the very beginning, rising to the rank of Regimental Sergeant Major,” says Oscar. “Throughout my time in CCF I have enjoyed being able to teach younger students new skills such as map reading and navigation, taking drill sessions and teaching cadets how to do basic first aid. I have enjoyed the CCF trips to Portsmouth naval base, where we have stayed on Royal Navy HMS Bristol, and the summer camp up to Barry Buddon in Scotland where we were received training from serving British Armed Forces personnel.
Oscar has also undertaken and achieved Bronze, Silver and Gold awards in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. He says, “It’s something I am monumentally proud of. The highlights of the my DofE award include the 100 mile hike along the South Downs and my residential where I did kayaking, paddle boarding and rock climbing in Devon for my Gold award.”
A keen sportsperson, Oscar has been part of the rugby 1st and A team since joining the School in Year 7. “Some of my most memorable moments are the National U15 festivals we host here at Langley, pre-season tour to Wales and representing the School at a high level with the 1st XV,” says Oscar.
“The last two years has seen me become a school prefect. A role I am extremely proud to have been given and one that allows me to interact with pupils across all age groups.”
Oscar has grasped the opportunities on offer at School and is someone who leads by example. We wish him all the best for his A-Levels and we very much look forward to following his progress long after he leaves Langley.
