We have a wealth of established alumnae here at Wycombe High School.
Warwick University, Classical Civilisation, BA
I have just finished my degree in Classical Civilisation with 1st Class Honours. I’ve loved my time at Warwick so much that I am staying on for a Masters in the same subject – officially Visual and Material Culture of Ancient Greece. I specialise particularly in the use of colour and dye in ancient art, so this is my main research subject.
Manchester University, European studies in Spanish BA
She is currently an Information Analyst which involves writing abstracts for different companies, working with Latin American papers and translating for companies such as Shell if they are interested in oil abroad.

Trishna was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2008 at the age of 28 and since then has volunteered for the MS Society’s ‘Asian MS’ support group.
Teaching Latin, Classical Civilisation and Ancient History at WHS! "It’s wonderful to be back and on the other side of the desk. I was surprised by how quickly it stopped feeling ‘weird’ and just felt like being back home; almost within a few hours I felt used to being in the staffroom, although it did feel a little odd calling some of my old teachers by their first name!
Now, I am the Head of Ensemble Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff (RWCMD). I have been here since 1999 and I work with undergraduate and postgraduate students on many different elements across their courses, but with responsibility for chamber and large ensemble music making.
I've just come to the end of two amazing years working with Warner Brothers at the Studio Tour and am due to start as a Trainee Broadcast Engineer on a graduate scheme with the BBC in September this year.
I do all sorts as a composer, performer, writer and educator. I write chiefly vocal music in all forms - choral, opera, experimental - but am also really interested in community music and getting amateurs to be a part of crazy new musicmaking.
