Congratulations to Upper Sixth Form student Della C who has secured a place at Yale University, one of the world's great universities and one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the United States. Four Yale graduates signed the American Declaration of Independence, and the university has educated five US presidents. Its alumni and sports teams are affectionately known as ‘Bulldogs’.
Della says "Yale to me is a mix of deep knowledge, cutting edge ideas, and a great community. I'm passionate about many different subjects—biology, English, psychology, animal cognition, photography—Yale seems like the perfect place to explore all of them. My Fettes experience, and the amazing teachers here, have opened my mind in so many ways, especially to the connections across disciplines. I'm excited, and grateful, to be able to study at a university that will keep pushing me."
