Cidney’s law ambition

Year 12 student Cidney Mulvany has ambitions to pursue a career in Law and was given a fantastic opportunity to find out what studying for a Law degree at University would involve during a residential trip to Cambridgeshire.

The week-long subject specific course forms part of a programme run by the Villiers Park Educational Trust and will see more of our Sixth Form students, interested in studying other subjects, take part throughout the year.

Cidney has found the experience very beneficial, commenting; “I attended Law based lectures and have been able to ask advice from PhD students and experienced lecturers. During the week we were taken on several interesting visits, including a memorable trip to Peterborough Prison where we looked at the education reform system”. Cidney enthused “I know for sure I want to go to university. I am studying Law and have been looking at the subject as a whole. I have come out of this experience knowing that Criminology is the area I wish to focus on and achieve a degree in.”

Another of Cidney’s passions is acting and has performed in many school productions at The Basildon Academies. In addition to studying A-Level Law and Photography, she is working towards a B-TEC in Performing Arts.
