Daisy Stones
BSc Geography student at St Cuthbert's Society, Durham University.

“I finished Lincoln Minster School in 2014 and during my 7 years there, my teachers always encouraged me to follow my dreams and to aim as high as I could.

“LMS shaped me to be the person that I am today and all of my teachers definitely have had a huge impact on me! I was also encouraged to develop my hobbies outside of academia, in my case, music. At University, being an active member of the Music department as well has allowed me to make lifelong friends and given me some amazing opportunities, such as touring Ljubljana with the Orchestral Society this Easter!

“My favourite memories of being a pupil at LMS would have to be the Geography field trips. I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Iceland twice and Switzerland to help me prepare for my A-Level Geography. Not only did these trips make my holidays much more exciting but they also gave me invaluable experiences that helped prepare me for University.

“I am undertaking a placement with the Lincoln County Council’s Drainage and Flooding department this summer, which will hopefully open some doors for me! I’m planning to stay at Durham University for my Risk Masters, and then I hope to follow a career in flood risk and management.

“I would tell current students to enjoy every single day at LMS as they will be the best years of your life. I’d also tell them to follow their teachers’ advice, as they are nearly always right!”
