Student of the Week

Demitri Evangelou
Demitri Evangelou
This week we are celebrating Demitri - who did such a great job chairing our Woodhouse mock election hustings this week (not any easy task with five vociferous candidates vying for votes!).
 
Demitri applied to Woodhouse from Southgate School, but we didn't give him an offer.. his predicted grades were too low.
 
However, unperturbed, he studied hard and exceeded his predictions. He got better grades and contacted us on results day to see if we would reconsider. His tenacity clearly paid off and serves as an excellent example to any of our current applicants who may have been disappointed.
 
Demitri is now studying Maths, Further Maths and Physics and has offers from Leeds, Loughborough, Liverpool and Reading Universities, but hopes to make it to his first choice Nottingham University to study Mathematics.
 
He's not sure what his career path is just yet, but is interested in teaching - outside of college he tutors a year 9 pupil in maths. He also works on Saturdays at a car parts store but probably won't pursue that as a vocation.
 
At Woodhouse he has been a tutor group rep, helped out at parents evening and assisted in the Physics demonstrations for visiting year 10's. He's played in the college volleyball team, likes to play chess with his college friends and joins in with many events.
 
Principal John Rubinstein has nothing but praise for Demitri's college contributions, he said "Demitri turns up for every meeting and makes excellent, thoughtful contributions which show real thinking for himself. He was part of a recent student-led working party on the late rule and again his contributions were mature and insightful.He is always good humoured... up for anything."
 
In short, Demitri is part of the fabric of our Woodhouse community.
 
"Coming to Woodhouse was the best decision of my life" he says. "I wish I could stay for another two years. People here are so friendly and trustworthy, and I've made many friends. The relationship I have with my teachers is so much better than I expected and not like my school - more grown up. I love the independence here. Even stuff like the email and woodle (our intranet) are great at keeping you informed and you know what's going on all the time. I really wanted to come here but it's been an even better experience than I hoped for."
 
In many ways, Demitri typifies the average student at Woodhouse, rather than the exceptional. He gets reasonable grades (mostly...) and with a good final push should achieve his aim of going to Nottingham.
 
But SOTW is not necessarily about dazzling academic success. It's about personal success. We are also celebrating Demitri for his personality, his all round good naturedness, his humour - he has many friends at Woodhouse and is well liked by staff too - a 'likeability' factor that will serve him well, we think.
 
He's been a student of great character at Woodhouse and we're sure he will be a popular choice for SOTW with his peers. We wish him the very best of luck with his upcoming exams and his future as a mathematician.
