Graduating Year: 2008
Max graduated from King’s College Alicante in 2008 after leading the school as their very first Head Boy. In September 2008, he gained a place at the University of the West of England in Bristol.
Initially I enrolled at the university to study Digital Media and Computing, making these life-changing choices though is not easy and after about 18 months in I realised that my passion lie in Law, so I was fortunate enough to be able to change courses and went on to study Law, eventually graduating in 2013. It was a steep learning curve for me and one which demanded a lot of time and effort on my part.
At university I took full advantage of the extra-curricular offerings and joined a number of different societies and teams, notably the UWE Bullets American Football team that won the Division title in my first year. This passion was sparked in me during my time at King’s where I often got involved in sports and activities outside of the standard classes.
During my time at the school I think the most influential person for me was Simon Wicks (now Head of Secondary at the school) He went above and beyond what any other teacher would do to make sure we were able to effectively complete the tasks at hand.
Since graduating from university, I now work in international business development for Capita in the UK as well as continuing with my sporting passions by teaching kickboxing at the weekends, the youngest member of my class being just four years old.
