Sixth Form Student Wins Top Prize in the Region!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that this year’s WINNER of PDSA’s Veterinary Student Work Experience competition for the Leicester area is Year 12 student Graham Smith.

We are over the moon that Graham’s hard work, commitment and talents have been recognised. The PDSA wrote in a letter to Graham, “You should be extremely proud of yourself, so give yourself a massive pat on the back! We received so many fantastic applications from smart, driven, passionate students, that choosing just one winner was a pretty tough ask, but we managed it and you came out on top! CONGRATULATIONS really are in order”.

Graham will spend five days over the summer holiday where he will closely shadow vets, vet nurses, animal care assistants and non-clinical staff. The PDSA want Graham to have a realistic knowledge and understanding of how a busy veterinary hospital works and this experience will no doubt support Graham in his application to university to study veterinary science beginning 2016.

Well done from all at King Edward VII.
