Seizing life


Keep challenging yourself, was the inspiring message in last week's Sixth Form lecture, from a woman who aims to row the Atlantic solo - in the fastest time - starting in January 2018.

Entrepreneur, environmental activist and adventurer Kiko Matthews told students that surviving a life-threatening illness had left her determined to spend the rest of her life 'pursuing meaningful experiences'.  She said she wanted to inspire other women to gain confidence by challenging themselves in whatever way honoured their skills and passions.

Kiko is aiming to raise £100k for the new Critical Care Unit at King's College Hospital to say thank you for the care she received there.  

You can follow Kiko's progress on her website, and we hope to have her back to the school later next year to share her Atlantic experiences.
