Hi, I’m Alice, I am 18 years old and I come from Barrow-in-Furness (or more specifically Walney Island) and I have just finished my A Levels and I have come to Castlerigg for a year before going to university to hopefully study Chemistry and Maths. I first came to Castlerigg on a school retreat in Year 10 and I fell in love with the manor, Keswick and the work that the team do here, I have been back many times since and I am so excited to be living and working here for the next year.

I love spending time with my friends and family at home, and I also enjoy reading books, and watching (too much) TV, usually on Netflix. I am a massive Harry Potter fan and I also love lots of other nerdy things. I love spending time outside particularly camping with my family and I look forward to walking more and enjoying living in The Lake District.
