Sir Christopher Hatton


Sixth Form


Friday 23rd September 2016

Ex pupil, Ritu Patel, (VI Form 2012 - 2014) called in to see us and update us on her achievemnts to date. Ritu is at Northampton University studying International Business. The course has taken her all over the world to Europe and Asia, and, bearing in mind what a shy student Ritu was, this has openend up her horizons and she has become an extremely confident young woman. Through hard work and networking she has now secured herself a position with American Airlines, once she has completed this her final year. She has achieved the position of Gate Manager through her understanding of different cultural business needs. Next stop CEO!! We hope Ritu will come back later in the year to speak to our students and to inspire them with her enthusiasm and can do attitude. Until then, we wish her every success in her last year and future career. Well done Ritu!

Hi Miss it's Amirah (Choudhury)!!

Thought I would write you an email to tell you how I'm getting on! 

You'll be pleased to hear that I've made it back from Kilimanjaro last September unfortunately I lost my camera with all my pictures stored (typical Amirah). The fact I made it back is an achievement in itself to be honest. 

I am currently in my second year of Law at Brunel, having a great time as the President of the Law Soc. I'll be going on placement year in the summer and will be working in a law firm for a whole year! It's called Hodge Jones and Allen I'll be a legal intern there! Then after that I'll go into my final year and either take the Bar or the LPC (not too sure yet which route). 

I hope you are well! Give my best to Mr. Pinkney too! 

P.s. I may be going to Greece with my uni to help out in the Greece refugee crisis. Will keep you posted if I do end up going! Hopefully I won't lose my camera this time. 

Kind regards,


Jake Jones, Head Boy, 2013 - 2014

Being the first Head Boy at Sir Christopher Hatton Academy was one of the best experiences of my life, so far. Not only did it give me a great sense of achievement from everything I did but I have also gained very useful skills that will undoubtedly help me in my future. As Head Boy I was able to lead groups, communicate between schools and speak to the public, all of which are key life skills needed for when I enter the world of work. It has been, and will continue to be, a great CV and personal statement booster and was a something I mentioned when applying to Universities. I hope to be able to use the skills I attained when I was Head Boy into university societies and committees.

I am now studying History and German at the University of Nottingham. My course is four years long and during the third year I am going to Germany to work at Robert Half International, where I did my work placement in Year 12. I hope to live in Germany in the future after studying at Nottingham and I thank Hatton for the opportunities that it has given me.

Manisha Patel, Head Girl, 2013 - 2014

Firstly I would like to thank all the staff at the Academy to whom I will be forever grateful for allowing me to have the best experience of my life as the first Head Girl, I have never felt more privileged and honoured to hold such a title.

To me, being Head Girl allowed me to give back to the school and thank them for all the opportunities I was given while studying at the Academy. A great example of this was allowing me to go to Frankfurt for work experience which encouraged me to be independent and also gave me the unique opportunity of working in another country.

As Head Girl I was able to grow as an individual and gain confidence in myself, develop my personality and represent the school, which is something I am extremely proud of. Even now, whilst studying at the University of Liverpool, one of the things which reminds me that I can stand out is the fact that I was chosen to be Head Girl and this gives me the confidence to be myself and remain motivated and strong at University.

The role still plays a very significant part in my life, whether it be my friends at University being impressed with the things I have done, or whether it be through the skills I gained such as organisation and leadership, which I now use when helping in the societies which I hope to potentially lead in later years at University. Having the fact that I was Head Girl on my CV, and also on my personal statement, is what makes me stand out to others; the importance and privilege of the role impresses and shows that you have outstanding personable qualities and this has given me the drive to continue to be the one who stands out and takes a lead, and hopefully, one day, become a successful lawyer.
